    Why do I have more faith in Osama releasing a statement "soon" than Van Halen?

    (story below)

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/south_asia/newsid_2060000/2060561.stm

    "Osama Bin Laden is alive, well and will make a video statement soon, according
    to a recording said to be of an al-Qaeda spokesman and broadcast on Arabic
    television."

    Here's what some high brow smarty pants say about soon...

    soon Pronunciation Key (sn)
    adv. soon·er, soon·est
    In the near future; shortly.
    Without hesitation; promptly: came as soon as possible.
    Before the usual or appointed time; early.
    With willingness; readily: I'd as soon leave right now.
    Obsolete. Immediately.

    Idioms:
    no sooner than
    As soon as: No sooner was the frost off the ground than the work began.
    sooner or later
    At some time; eventually: Sooner or later you will have to face the facts.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Middle English sone, from Old English sna, immediately, soon.]
    Usage Note: No sooner, as a comparative adverb, should be followed by than not when, as in these typical examples: No sooner had she come than the maid knocked. I had no sooner left than she called.

    I think this is about as good as we're going to get. The example applies, too.

    My daughter, 6 years old, frequently asks when something particular will happen or when we are going somewhere. My response is SOON. After fifteen minutes of deliberation and discussion, she's no closer to understanding 'SOON.' So my response is "Not Now." Same thing applies here boys, Not now!
