Texas Tech News, Notes and Links | 3 Things


As always, DTN is not a political blog, but I think it would be impossible to escape last night's news (Inside the raid that killed bin Laden - Yahoo! News).  I think Peter said it best on BON, I hope we take the time to chant "USA" rather than quibble over any sort of politics.  And as noted from the picture above, much thanks to Brian Holland (HollandKCBD) on Twitter for taking the picture and posting it on his Twitter feed.  Kudos, sir. 

And to bring it back to sports, they celebrated in Philadelphia during last night's game and thanks to The Dagger, how college campuses celebrated.
