What to do with Saddam Hussein? Robb Hibbard (Wednesday, 2:16 pm) suggests the Ludovico Technique, as described in A Clockwork Orange:

Ideally, Saddam would undergo the treatment received by the droog Alex in Anthony Burgess' best-known work. The bezoomy old veck's glazzies would be pried open real dobby as he viddied the veshch he created.

Not that we're trying to rehabilitate the merzky prestoopnik, mind you:

I couldn't care less about the philosophizing. If ever someone merited some horrorshow tolchocking, it's Saddam.

Choodesny, O my droogies, to viddy such in the gazetta.
