The people - of Iraq, that is - have spoken. Saddam is to be hanged by the neck until dead.

There will be some screaming here in the US, saying he didn't get a fair trial. Well, though the case was staged in the US, he was tried in a sovereign court under Iraqi law, by THEIR rules. From what I understand, no Americans - other than Saddam's lawyers - were allowed in the courtroom. It would be the same if he were tried in a Turkish court, under Turkish law. The US has no say in that.

IMHO, it couldn't happen to a more deserving candidate. Except maybe Castro.

But Castro did contribute one cool thing to the US. Antonio Prohias was a political cartoonist for several Cuban newspapers. When Prohias drew cartoons criticizing Castro, Castro called for his death. Prohias was forced to flee for his life. He came to the US and created this.

And the rest is history.


Gerald Ford has passed away, at age 93.

One thing that Ford had that some folks tend to forget is that he had a great sense of humor. Chevy Chase used to lampoon Ford all the time, usually by falling into things. But on a Weekend Update, Chase did his standard opening - "Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase and you're not" - and suddenly Ford appeared onscreen and said, "Good evening, I'm the President and you're not".

And this was while he was in office.

I just wish it were posted on YouTube. Funny as hell.


Here's an article by Thomas Sowell about the outrage over "income disparities"

I think it makes a couple excellent points...not the least of which is that it's very dangerous to let the government decide how much money you're allowed to make.


SpikeTV is running a Bond marathon for a few days, calling it the "007 Days Of Christmas".

Right now, "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is on. I have it on DVD. It's much better than people seem to think.

Time to get on with the day.

Be seeing you.

personally, I think Hussain should hang by the neck no matter what government was judging him. prisons just to torture children, while their parents watch...sorry if I don't miss you, Sadam.
