“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

7 years

And where is Osama bin Laden? Hiding out somewhere? Alive? Dead? Does anyone even know?

Here's what will happen and it doesn't matter who's elected President in November: at some point everyone will just kind of decide that he'd be so old by now that he must be dead. In seventy-five or a hundred years some archaeologists and historians will dig up some bones somewhere and they'll do some DNA testing, or whatever it is they do by then, and confirm that the bones belonged to him and make some pretty good guesses about when and how he died.

It will be reported on whatever the media's equivalent of page B-14 is by then.

No one will care. All of us who lived in these times will be dead, and the living will have-- as the living always do-- their own problems.
