Is He Dead, Jim?

I saw two funny death-related snippets yesterday that seemed worth passing along. Somewhere, someone (my brain was not working 100% yesterday) was trying to clarify the extent to which an idea or option was "dead" (Mideast Peace Process, the Constitution under Bush, sumthin' or other...) and he asked "Is it Elvis Dead or Disco Dead"?

In other news, in a Boston Globe article about the return of Theo Epstein, another baseball GM, who knows Theo, said that he always viewed Theo and the Sox parting ways as "like a Mafia Funeral. I'll believe he's really not coming back when I see the body in the coffin at the cemetery".
