James Lileks has it right. Osama bin Laden chooses this moment to release an audio tape (what, no video?) to prove he's still alive, and I'm finding it hard to care. Yes, he still needs to be caught and disposed of. I'm sure that will happen, eventually. But that which has been achieved will be sufficient for the moment: He has been rendered irrelevant.
I'd like to be able to congratulate NATO and the U.N. for their role in this symbolic victory, but, well, you know.
