Notes: This past week the United States Army captured Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq. That was truly great news for us in America.

After feeling celebratory, I happened to think of Saddam's doubles. You remember ... those ill-fated men who through surgery and training were supposedly made to look and act like him. What has happened to them? It's fun to play with that one. Did they continue as his doubles even after Saddam was overthrown? Do they look scruffy, now, like Saddam did on capture? Are they also hiding in spider holes?

I bet we never hear what has happened to Saddam's doubles
. But I can tell you I'm glad I'm not one of them. Happy Holidays. 12.21.03
