Osama bin Laden death celebration at Mesa State College in Grand Junction (VIDEO)

In our post about how Osama bin Laden's death was experienced by the Facebook generation, we noted that localizing this story was unnecessary, because it impacted all of us, wherever we were.

Which is why spontaneous celebrations broke out in New York City, Washington, D.C. -- and Grand Junction, on the campus of Mesa State College (soon to become Colorado Mesa University).

There was singing and flag-waving aplenty at my alma mater, as well as the declaration that Republicans, Democrats and everything in between were united -- for last night, anyhow. Check out the video below.
