It’s all over the news, but I guess I should post something about this so my "On This Day…" doodad will make sense next year. I was up in the wee hours on Saturday/Sunday and got early word of Saddam’s capture via a post on Metafilter. I’m glad they caught him, but I dread what’s coming next. I don’t believe in an eye for an eye. I’m afraid it’s going to be brutal, and I guess I’d just rather see him be locked up and humiliated for the rest of his life rather than killed. But maybe they won’t. If they kill him, some will consider him a martyr, and that would be bad.
Where’s Osama anyway? Sooner or later they’ll get him too I’m sure.
