Osama Bin Laden and Adolf Hitler share a towering reputation for evil – and also an anniversary.
Both were declared dead on May 1.
Late on May 1, 1945 – about as late as President Obama’s TV announcement Sunday – German radio announced that Hitler had fallen “fighting to the last breath against Bolshevism and for Germany.”
He had actually committed suicide the day before.
In some cultures May 1 is the official beginning of summer. In many places, May Day is also Labor Day, a celebration of the working man.
