I, too, was inwardly glad the man was dead (not that there aren't other monsters out there, but it was a relief to know my daughter would grow up in a world devoid of that one), but I never reveled in it and found myself extremely disgusted by the behavior, comments, and celebrations of those who were. It struck me as perverse to be so happy a man, ANY man, had been killed.

But I never thought that maybe my background in English lit may have contributed to my preferred way to handle the situation--an inward relief, an outward grim nod of approval at a thing that had to be done even if distasteful and then moving on.
