Hand-wringing

Courtesy of... you really need to ask?
"While many nations suffered from al-Qaida's terrorism and few in the world will mourn Bin Laden's death, the United States is the only place where it sparked spontaneous outpourings of raucous jubilation."
Oh, boo hoo...

Meanwhile in sunny Glasgow...
"Not even a week has passed since the riots in Kelvingrove Park and yet another party is said to be kicking off this weekend. The celebration theme this time? Osama Bin Laden’s death.

Revellers are being warned against attending yet another unofficial street party in the West End park which, once again, been organized on Facebook.

Glasgow City Council condemns the plans and is warning people not to attend the 'dangerous' event."
Well, ok - I agree it isn't exactly spontaneous. This has nothing to do with "muscle that converts shared citizenship into a form of national genius [being] well-trained" and the other stuff Gary Younge goes on about; we're just mental like that.

[Disclaimer: this is a joke, ok? You really shouldn't go if you value your safety.]
