Update: Megrahi’s Condition Downgraded To Less Than Super

In a post called “Oil for Scum” yesterday, I said Lockerbie bomber Ali al-Megrahi was doing “super” after being released for “humanitarian” reasons over a year ago, when Scottish authorities swore he had one foot in the grave, and the other on a banana peel.  Today we learn his condition has been downgraded significantly, as the Libyans say he is finally near death.  I think we can all trust Libyan sources implicitly, so it’s time for the world to ask itself how it can soldier on without this noble hero in its midst.  I guess sending a “Get Well Soon” bouquet of pink roses and white phosphorous is out of the question.

Meanwhile, your humble blogger will learn to cope with the embarrassment of having someone assume room temperature right after I reported he was “super.”  I hope that doesn’t happen again. 

In other news, Kim Jong Il and his son are doing super.
