Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

It would seem, based on the psychotic fervor in the news, that Saddam Hussein has just been executed.

In a sense this is a good thing, or at least not a bad one. Saddam Hussein was, any way you slice it, a pretty bad guy. He has quite a bit of blood on his hands and I doubt that in a fair world he deserved to live.

Yet, I don't feel any relief at this news. There is a difference between a fair trial and a kangaroo court. When thinking about Hussein's trial, how would you classify it?

Any fair trial would have reached the same verdict- but at least a fair trial would have left us with some kind of dignity.

Rot in hell, Saddam Hussein. I just hope the legacy of this fiasco isn't as bad as I fear it will be.
