It’s most likely just a weird coincidence. . .

You know. . . Andrew Breitbart dying on the day he was going to release potentially damning evidence about the President.

Regardless, this reminds me of a staple plot of TV shows during my childhood

  • Person A commits a crime, perhaps murder
  • Person B learns about it
  • Person B tells Person A they’re going to the police
  • Person A kills person B

If I learned nothing else from the six hours of TV I watched daily during my childhood, it was never tell a murderer you’re going to the police.

A well known aphorism is that it’s perilous to try to kill the emperor and miss. It’s worse to inform him of the time and date you’re going to make the attempt.

But, perhaps, Eli Wallach put it best.
