The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

A FAIR TRIAL?: Of course Saddam should get a fair trial. His rights should be protected and his sentence subject to appeal, and after that we hang him publicly. The hangman should be an Iraqi, and the position of hangman should be filled by national lottery, so that everyone will get a chance at the lousy bastard. If the Iraqi government is serious about paying its debts, it should sell the lottery tickets; they'd make a fortune, especially if they allowed block buying of tickets.
