The sex symbols of tomorrow?

I suspect this is one of those trends that are 99% fabrication, but the Washington Post assures me that publishers are bracing for a "flurry" of Navy SEAL-themed romance novels inspired by the death of Osama Bin Laden. The idea of getting all hot and bothered by the killing of another human being (even if said human is, y'know, Osama Bin Laden) strikes me as more than a little creepy, but apparently I'm supposed to see the SEALS who carried out this mission as "superheroes without the spandex".
