I’m not Juan Cole but even I can catch these guys out sometimes

There are six human lives that have to end to publish the next piece. I expect they’ll all be dead tomorrow.

It didn’t feel ghoulish until six. I don’t know why seven just seemed like a number.

Of course he wasn’t just a number but seven has no name and he’s already, so it seems, part of the big shell game. As he was dead a couple of hours ago and now he’s disappeared from the record.

This is the story—Captain Sean Dolan killed in Afghanistan— as it looks right now, 4 July 2007, 04:28:06 UTC. Click on it to see what it looked like an hour or so ago. Thanks to Google for caching it. Probably won’t be there soon either.

Damned lies
