Sunday Archive XII: Infidel One (Oscar bin Laden outtakes)

The last Oscar Bin Laden article ended with a cliffhanger.  I wrote a very rough draft for the next story in March of 2006, which is below.  It’s actually the third part of a “trilogy of articles” launched with Today – Silver Spring!.  The second part was never written.

Cleaning out three gigs worth of emails is a real trip down memory lane. Here I am with a beard.  And a dog.  In a bathrobe, at Christmas.  And my aunt smirking in the background (drunk):
