So this photo, of the White House staff watching events unfold in the Situation Room, is making the rounds. I really appreciate Obama and Clinton's expressions.

Boingboing pointed out some nuances (in part from here): What's also amazing is how quickly this photo has been turned into an array of pseudo-funny Memes. My favorite was the "All Obama". "Playstation" was also pretty funny.
Bin Laden is finally dead. It's amazing what Americans can do when the Playstation Network is down.

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'
