Mindless Empiricism

"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated" -- Mark Twain. 
If we don’t get to see a photo, how will we know with certainty that Osama bin Laden isn’t simply living in a retirement community with Hitler, Jim Morrison, Elvis, Andy Kaufman, Tupac, Princess Diana, and Michael Jackson? 
I hear that they mostly talk about the good old days, the JFK assassination, and the 2004 election results in Ohio.
Personally, I’ll be satisfied when I see the long-form death certificate. 
I know, I know — 140 char. versions of these should probably be on twitter, rather than here. Sorry.
