Tuesday’s Open Line

In small world news, an Arkansas newspaper briefly interviewed a Henderson resident as he was passing through about his thoughts on the capture of Osama.  “Mike Behar, 50, of Henderson, N.C., who was flying to Little Rock from Chicago for business, said the past 10 years had been a nightmare as bin Laden eluded the United States.  “It’s been a long time coming,” Behar said. “He had something to do with a lot of people dying. I wouldn’t want to be him right now … if he’s meeting his maker.”  Behar said he didn’t know whether it was better to take the terrorist dead or alive.  “I don’t know what the right answer is,” Behar said.”
