Shouting at the TV

I found myself yelling at the TV again this morning. There was a story on the Today show about Saddam Hussein’s trial and how he refused to go to court this morning, “throwing his trial into chaos.”

Why are they letting him run the show like that? Dan says they should gag him. Not a bad plan. I think they should lock him in his cell and show him the trial via closed-circuit TV. But it’s ridiculous to let him carry on like he does, insulting and lecturing the judge, disrupting things by telling his lawyers to walk out, etc. Time to show him he’s really not in charge anymore.

Interesting: I just discovered that Richard Engel, Today’s correspondent in Iraq, is doing a blog: http://baghdadblog.msnbc.com/. I really admire him – he’s been in Iraq for months, if not years. Really tough job he’s doing, and I think he does it really well. Way to go, Richard.
