Osama bin Laden is dead

The elephant Osama bin Laden, that is. Indeed, the same one I blogged about here.

My favourite line from the report:
Conservationists have criticized the shooting, saying the elephant killed was not "Osama," but a look-a-like.
Heh. I won't be surprised if some armchair analysts now start theorising about how it doesn't matter whether the elephant itself is dead or not, but what Osama stands for will remain a potent force for decades to come.

And whoever named the elephant Osama? And why? Gargantuan curiosity crawls.
