The latest message from the Osama Bin Laden Soundalike Society was top of the BBC’s headlines in all the evening news bulletins. Meanwhile, Claire alerted me to yet another horrifying development in Afghanistan.

As I always say, it’s in the interests of both sides of the War on Terror to live in the parallel dimension where MC Osama’s still burning up the mic, and I realize I don’t pay a licence fee, but it would be nice if the BBC reported on the real world rather than an imaginary one.
