strange questions journalists ask October 19, 2010

The BBC asks this question:

Fiji has admitted losing the legal document confirming its independence from the United Kingdom. But does that threaten its existence as a state?

Although the article compares this lost legal document to a lost birth certificate, it is more like a lost copy of a divorce decree. After all, a birth certificate is evidence of the notification of a physical fact (which exists independent of any formal evidence of that fact), whereas the legal document Fiji lost was evidence of a change of status.
