Death in the Playground of the West
Jamal, my Libyan Facebook friend has been killed in the war. I didn't know him - he was a travel agent I once dealt with when I thought I was going there, poor man. I think I may owe him money for a visa. An odd moment among the laughter and levity in Facebook, the playground of the Western world, like finding a dead body on a ride in Disneyland. 'Et in Arcardia ego.' I know because his wife became my contact on LinkedIn and she told me in reply to my enquiry.
