"Bombing" them with food is something that was discussed on some other 
lists I'm on, since the Taleban and /usr/bin/laden became the prime 
suspects. [1] And I'm happy to be surprised by this turn of events.

I figured that the administration would think about it and realize 
saturation bombing won't do anything. But it's a great comeuppance to Ann 
Coutler, and the other armchair generals.

Now let's send over the iBooks, DVDs, and hip-hugger jeans, and play the 
'singing belly button ad', that'd freak the clerics.

[1] I've seen it spelled both Taleban and Taliban. Anyone know what's the 
right one?
