HOW TO AIR BIN LADEN TAPES: Reader Craig Demel has some advice:

Since the last couple tapes have been devoid of any references to

post-December events, bin Laden is probably dead, and what we’re

seeing is greatest-hits footage, in a transparent attempt to convince

us he’s not.

So my idea for news organizations trying to decide how or whether

to air new tapes which surface is, air them, then say, “Oh, we’ve

also got a _new_ videotape from the Three Stooges”, then show

Larry, Moe, and Curly slapping each other and yelping and growling.

Ah, a wise guy, eh? Why I oughta. . .
