We’ve got a pattern developing in the family.

When Osama Bin Laden’s death was announced, Daughter sent me a text to inform me of the event.

When Muammar Gaddafi was killed, Young Son sent me a text to tell me the news.

The next time a despot dies, it’s Eldest Son’s turn to send me a text.

How did this get to be a family tradition? And a morbid one at that.

At least my children are paying attention to the news.
