Jailhouse Blues

Who the hell is running this damn Saddam Hussein trial? It seems like they're in session even less than Congress -- after two days of testimony, they've adjourned for another month -- but at least it's twice as entertaining. Saddam seems to be doing a screen test for his new role as Crazy McCrazerson, and so far he looks like a shoo-in. His latest complaints, that the American troops guarding him have beaten his and his co-defendants, are not entirely implausible, but what he doesn't realize is that no one gives a damn. And even if there is evidence of some kind of bodily injury, it could just as easily have come from those spiders in that hole he was hiding in.
