Dave Hyde pulls this column on Bin Laden together very nicely

    It was easy to get caught up in the moment of last night's news that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, as so many did in front of the White House, at Ground Zero and at college campuses across the country. But this column by the Sun-Sentinel's Dave Hyde definitely put things in perspective:

    Is it about everything Osama bin Laden missed in sports while hanging out in his Internet-and-phone-free compound for six years?

    "Congratulations, Osama. You left the yard."

    In all seriousness, I really liked Hyde's piece.

    I liked this piece because it didn't get preachy and try to tell us how we are supposed to act. I've hated the letters and columns that slam college kids and people outside the White House for celebrating. This one struck an excellent tone, I thought. We can be happy that we finally got him, but, in the end, nothing really changed about 9/11.

    Dave's been on a bit of a roll this week. Unfortunately, the topics he has dealt with happen to be sad ones. His column from the funeral for former Dolphins tight end and broadcaster Jim Mandich was very touching as well.
