A Matter Of Opinion

The Bad Die Old

Osama bin Laden has apparently released a videotape that is apparently current because he mentions current events. See story.

Anyway, he apparently dyed his beard and looks better than in past videos and nowhere near his death bed, so the kidney failure rumor wasn't true.

Had a discussion the other day with some friends in which we wondered why some good people seem to die too young while men and women who have been emotional terrorists in other people's lives or abused their bodies for years can sometimes last into their 80s and 90s. One of life's further ironies.

And here's bin Laden, alive and dying his beard rather than dying, period.
