Ding dong!

The witch is dead.

I couldn't wait a week to post on this, to say that despite my spidey-sense tingling like crazy when he was reported to be shot in the face and his body disposed of at sea, so he couldn't be facially identified even with photographs and no more dna can be taken from him, and the reports that he was already identified by dna so that it must be asked - is that even possible when it just happened, and when the material could not have been sent by any means to a lab so fast, and it seems pretty unlikely that there was a lab set up for it in the helicopter? -

that on seeing the news I immediately felt a great swelling of joy in my heart, and though not being a celebratory type person, I watched the celebrations. Not being much of a conspiracy theorist either, I hope the above questions are answered very soon. In the meantime, I will presume he is dead and be happy.

Ding dong!


  1. Yes, it was the lone gun men shooting from a UFO that Elvis was piloting. Conspiracy theory is just one step away from psychotic break. History has proven, to paraphrase the immortal words of Ben Franklin, that for two people to keep a secret one of them must be dead.

  2. I think that would be "lone gun man" not "men".

    The only people as wacky as conspiracy theorists are people who believe what the government tells them unquestioningly, despite all past experience.

  3. I'm just glad that we shot the SOB instead of dropping a bomb on him because this way he knew what was happening and who was doing it.

    Personally I would have put his head on a pike outside the Pentagon but I'm pretty sure that kind of thing went out of favor shortly after the William Wallace era.

  4. I'm not sure what he knew or not. They did this at night and might have cut the power and used night vision goggles. Of course, there is no way to be sure unless they show us the videos.

    I know they were still putting heads on pikes in the Elizabithean era. Not sure if it lasted past then.

    By the way, despite Bear's mockery of my cynical questions - the gov't has already substantially changed their story.

About Me

My photo
I started this blog in September, 2006. Mostly, it is where I can talk about things that interest me, which I otherwise don't get to do all that much, about some remarkable people who should not be forgotten, philosophy and theories (like Don Foster's on who wrote A Visit From St. Nicholas and my own on whether Santa is mostly derived from a Norse god) and analysis of issues that concern me. Often it is about books. I try to quote accurately and to say when I am paraphrasing (more and more). Sometimes I blow the first name of even very famous people, often entertainers. I'm much better at history, but once in a while I see I have written something I later learned was not true. Sometimes I fix them, sometimes not. My worst mistake was writing that Beethoven went blind, when he actually went deaf. Feel free to point out an error. I either leave in the mistake, or, if I clean it up, the comment pointing it out. From time to time I do clean up grammar in old posts as, over time I have become more conventional in my grammar, and I very often write these when I am falling asleep and just make dumb mistakes. It be nice to have an editor, but . . . .
