News and Notes – 3/10/2007

Captain America is dead. I am not sure what the political ramifications are of this, but Marvel Comics killed off Captain America in the most recent (and I’m guessing final) issue of Captain America. I am not a comic book reader. Is this the first time a super hero has been killed off?

No cake for Osama. Osama Bin Laden turns 50 today, but he won’t be celebrating. According to Sharia Law, birthdays are forbidden in Islam. They are considered an example of “Western contamination.”
