King Fahd of Saudi Arabia reported dead

UPI reports that Saudi King Fahd has been dead since late Wednesday (that's right, he has, or had, his own website). A power struggle may be in progress at this time between Crown Prince Abdullah, second in line of succession, and seven of his half-brothers who fill all of the other top spots in the regime. Actually, he's been pretty dead since 1996 and Abdullah has been the de facto regent since that time.

Nothing to worry about. These are all devout followers of the religion of peace and I am sure they will work it out with a minimum of bloodshed.
