Bin Ladin Reported Dead

The network news is awash with reports that one of our drones in the tribal areas of northern Pakistan has bagged Osama Bin Ladin. The man has been hiding out so well that I believed he has been killed in the Tora Bora mountains in 2003 or thereabouts. OK I was wrong.

Update, as I write: Now I'm hearing that U.S. ground troops were involved. Not that we would send in troops to a foreign country uninvited, and that we have the body. I eagerly anticipate the placement of his head on a pike at the front entrance of the White House.

The president will be going on the air shortly, probably to apologize.

I'm lifting a dollop of some really fine rum in celebration.
