The Death of Facts

Chicago Trib runs obit for facts, Facts, 360 B.C.-A.D. 2012. A snippet:

To the shock of most sentient beings, Facts died Wednesday, April 18, after a long battle for relevancy with the 24-hour news cycle, blogs and the Internet. Though few expected Facts to pull out of its years-long downward spiral, the official cause of death was from injuries suffered last week when Florida Republican Rep. Allen West steadfastly declared that as many as 81 of his fellow members of theU.S. House of Representatives are communists.

Facts held on for several days after that assault — brought on without a scrap of evidence or reason — before expiring peacefully at its home in a high school physics book. Facts was 2,372.

    “Facts” had one foot out of the grave when Dick Cheney became Secretary of Defense. I heard last week at a seminar that there are tons of government contracts lawyers in DC still making tons of money out of the Cheney cancellation of the Navy stealth bomber contract.

    The obit was very clever.
