Reading The New Yorker "Erasing bin Laden" Cover: A Process, Not an Act

The thoughtful and more realistic message of the latest New Yorker cover, as compared to the TIME bin Laden snuff job is:

The impression bin Laden has had on the U.S. — as both an individual and a symbol — is not only terrifically difficult to erase, but will be with us for some time to come.
