Marshal Zeringue over at the Campaign for the American Reader blog recently sent word of an interesting post. Here is the intro:

“Who is Osama bin Laden?” is no longer an interesting question.

Where is Osama bin Laden, and why is he still alive? Now that’s an interesting two-part question.

When was Osama’s first appearance in a work of fiction? Not a very interesting question, but it’s the sort of thing that’s easier to find out in the Internet Age than it was not that long ago.

Marshal goes on to offer what he thinks is the answer to that question. As I said, interesting. Check out the whole site.
