Bizarre coincidence.

After Saddam Hussein insulted differently-heighted people everywhere by calling George W Bush a "small midget", Scotland's own vertically-challenged leader became so upset that he found himself base over apex:
JACK McConnell was treated for cuts to his face yesterday after slipping on an icy pavement as he left Bute House, the First Minister’s official residence in Edinburgh.
When I heard this news on television last night I didn't pay too much attention, but as the Scotsman points out today:
The late former first minister, Donald Dewar, 63, died shortly after slipping on the pavement outside Bute House in the winter of 2000. He was admitted to hospital in the evening of 11 October after the fall.
This is really spooky.
