that the day we celebrate Osama's death, it is also National Play Your Ukulele Day? I THINK NOT. Cosmic karma, baby. :o

On the other hand, bin Laden's death occurred on May Day, not National Play Your Ukulele Day (leading to a whole other set of questions about coincidences, as May Day celebrates workers and commemmorates victories of the labor movement, such as an eight-hour workday). In addition, to my knowledge, this is the first of several Play Your Ukulele Days that features reactions to bin Laden's death.

Actually, he was killed early May 2 local time.

The summer time zone in Pakistan is UTC +6, whereas EDT in the U.S. is UTC -4, a 10-hour difference from Washington, DC.

Ok - I'm going to go ahead and preemptively lock this thread. I understand no harm was intended, but lets stay away from politics please and topics that could easily get inflammatory. Thanks all.
