Sad Sign of the Times

According to Yahoo, searches for “Osama bin Laden” spiked by nearly 100% on Sunday, with 25% of those searches coming from people under 24.

The spike came after U.S. President Barack Obama announced that U.S. forces had killed the al-Qaida leader, who masterminded the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the U.S.

The fifth most popular related search was “Who is Osama bin Laden?” Teens between 13 and 17 made up 66% of that search.

Maybe this is just the logical search to find out more about him beyond 9/11?
