Wow. Truly such a historic day.

Now that it's been confirmed that after a nearly-ten year search, Osama bin Laden was found and killed by American troops, new details are emerging about his death.

The terrorist was located inside a large military compound in Abbottabad, an hour north of Islamabad, with no internet or phone connection. According to sources, American operatives have known about his location since last summer, and have been strategizing their plan of attack since then.

Finally, they descended upon him yesterday, and he was said to have "resisted the assault force" by using a woman as a shield against the attack and later with an automatic weapon. Special Forces Navy Seals then shot him through the head, finally killing him.

One of his sons, two couriers, and the aforementioned woman were also killed during the 40-minute raid.

In accordance with Islamic law, his body has been buried at sea.

Our thoughts are with all of the people who lost someone in the 9/11 attacks, as well as all of the innocent lives lost yesterday during the raid.

May they all rest easy knowing that bin Laden can't hurt anyone else.

Elizabeth Taylor Laid To Rest Today

Elizabeth Taylor laid to rest

Dame Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away Wednesday at 79-years-old after congestive heart failure, will be laid to rest today at the same cemetery where her friend Michael Jackson rests.

The private service is going to be held this afternoon at Forest Lawn in Glendale, CA.

We wish her family and friends our best and hope this private affair remains private (talking to you paparazzi!).

As a screen legend, a style icon, and world class activist, Dame Taylor has lead one heck of a life that should inspire us all.

We hope she is in a better place now where she can rest in peace.
