Rumor: Gaddafi Dead and Quote o' the Day

There are a lot of conflicting reports regarding the fate of Libya's nut-case dictator Muammar Gaddafi (spelling wrong? I don't care).

He got whacked
He's fled to Algeria and his sons are being held by rebels
He's fleeing to Venezuela and the protective arms of Hugo Chavez
Gaddafi will never flee, stating: "We will fight to the last drop of blood."

Dave in Texas wins our Quote o' the Day award.

Can't touch this? Apparently they could.

Of course, Libya is said to own 144 tons of physical gold.

Which, at the current spot price, should yield nearly $9 billion for the rebels.

Which should fund... something or other.

I wouldn't be on all that gold being there. Qaddafi probably only hung around as long as he did to make sure he got it out of there first.
