Saddam's Hanging Chad

Good morning. A few hanging items to start the week.

  • So Bush and his GOP got their November surprise, and it's a thick one. Saddam is to hang. See the bacchanal's complete roundup in Candide's Latest.
  • Don’t tell me that we’re not becoming, as an American society, meaner, stupider, more authoritarian, all in the name of security—“responsibility”—as we go about supposedly preserving these freedoms of ours. It doesn’t have to be Guantanamo to make the point. It’s in the little things, the everyday incidents of ordinary life around us, that hiss with the sound of freedom’s rug being pulled from under us. See "Outlawing Creative Subversions."
