On Wednesday, a panel including myself and two other members of the greater Seattle community appeared on “Voices of Diversity” — a show on local radio station KBCS 91.3 FM in Bellevue — discussing Osama bin Laden’s death. It was truly a fascinating conversation. I was invited on after my opinion column entitled “What bin Laden’s death means to our generation.” Here’s the description from the station’s website:

President Obama told the nation a small team of NAVY Seals killed Osama bin Laden at a compound in Pakistan. The president’s dramatic announcement brought cheering crowds into the streets in cities and on campuses across the country. Some media pundits criticized the celebratory mood. Others felt the reaction was appropriate. What do you think? How did you react to the news of Osama’s death? Today on Voices of Diversity we talk to local residents from a variety of backgrounds, all with strong feelings about the killing of Osama bin Laden and its aftermath.
