I found this on the Hagerstown Suns official website:
THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN
Due to the response from our fans, the Suns will not be doing an 'Osama bin Laden Bobblehead Giveaway Night' this season. The Suns completely agree with our fan base in that this idea is 'Way out of line'. The Suns appreciate the great response to our On-Line Fan Poll. Please be sure to visit our site often as we will continue to post more promotional ideas for the summer of 2002.

"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
I had heard that they're going to use him on the bench with Randa acquired to play third and Nady playing first, I believe. As much as Nevin wouldn't have helped the O's out that much, Ponson has been disasterous this season.
