"All men have an emotion to kill; when they strongly dislike some one they involuntarily wish he was dead. I have never killed any one, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction." ~ Clarence Darrow (in his biography, The Story of My Life)
Apparently a slightly altered version of this is going around the internet, attributed to Mark Twain. But from what I've read, Mr. Twain actually quoted Mr. Darrow when he said it. Whatever - still, true words for many, I guess. Although, honestly, I can't say I've ever wished anyone dead. Out of my life? Yes. Definitely. But not dead.
I'm not saying it's wrong for anyone to feel relief or even satisfaction over another's death, or even to wish for it. I'm just saying for me, celebrating anyone's death (even an enemy's) doesn't feel good. While certainly not in mourning, I've made no real celebration of recent events either. Hopefully, with the loss of one, life will be better for thousands of others.

Okay, that's it. Have a great day, filled with sunshine and good health!
