.... are we talking about the same Saddam?

During his time in confinement, Saddam Hussein writes poems, tends a garden, and eats muffins.

Many brutal dictators are educated and have refined tastes. Did you expect he'd be ranting insanely, scratching his fingers raw against his cell wall, and eating only raw meat?

The question, of course, that will be raised is why is he being supplied with a garden and muffins? But I leave that to others.

I believe it was Gov George Wallace, who when asked about the deplorable conditions in Alabama prisons responded, "Ain't s'pposed to be a hotel."

Don't worry Norman Mailer and the folks at PEN will see to it.
