Dead Or Alive 

In case you were worried about him, the Christian Science Monitor informs us that Osama bin Laden is alive and well. When asked to comment, President Bush responded "Who?"

[An aside: Notice that this article also mentions that Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf is now calling for the US to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. They just don't make stalwart allies like they used to.]

By the way, I assume that all of you are now aware that more time has elapsed between 9/11 and today than between Pearl Harbor and VJ Day. We managed to defeat Hitler, invent the atom bomb, and generally "make the world safe for democracy" in less time than it's taken us to find one crazy Saudi with bad kidneys. But then again, FDR didn't respond to Pearl Harbor by invading Sweden.
