Commentary: Nothing funny about Obama poll on Facebook

Forgive me if I don't think talk of presidential assassinations is funny. Not even on Facebook. So I'm glad the U.S. Secret Service investigated the online survey that asked whether people thought President Obama should be assassinated. They've determined it was a juvenile mistake. But assassination threats against a president are serious business. Even those who promote it in jest need to learn that lesson.
