Someone had a camera phone trained on Saddam Hussein's face as he swung from the gallows and the video may be found online. Don't want to see it myself for it's not the vision I want before me as 2007 begins.
The Scotsman's Saddam's last journey, on a pick-up truck tells of the new video, his execution and burial in the middle of the night (hmmm-m-m-m!), and how even in death, Saddam believed in the keep on truckin' mantra of the 60s.
Meanwhile back in the USA, Bush continues to glob himself onto Gerald Ford's character coat tails as a measured and decent man as if he's describing himself in the process of lauding Ford. The noive! He may want to watch those comparisons which are actually contrasts. Saying it a bunch doesn't make it so, George. Seems you'd know that by now.
SO'W is wishing Happy New Year to All--and may the common good and the common man be remembered and acted upon in a measured and decent way on Capitol Hill in 2007.
