I've got a feeling that it's going to be a very active news day. Just one of those aching-in-the-knees-means-it's-gonna-rain type of feelings.
This is just hitting the wire:
Hostage Bigley reported killed
If true, my gut reaction is that Tony Blair doesn't survive the next week as Prime Minister. The calls for Blair's head have been growing louder by the day. His polling is in the tank, and his own Labour party is increasing its distance from Blair's flawed decisions and poodle-like loyalty to his master (G.W. Bush).
Update, 11:45AM: Reuters confirms that Bigley was beheaded.
