I would comment on the capture of Sadaam, except that I have nothing to say. In some ways it was almost inevitable, in others it was almost impossible; I guess we know which one it was now. Inevitable after the fact is meaningless though. Thank's to PinkMoose for blogging about it, otherwise who knows when I would have found out about this historic and momentous occasion?
So instead of extended comments on that, here is a song I like, and I like the lyrics to:


A New Desert Life
By Further Seems Forever

This is where the water becomes shallow.
And nothing here is quite as deep
As you hoped it would be.

You wish the lines were drawn a little clearer.
The tides have turned
This drought will burn
And everything is falling out of place.

And drying in the sun
Shriveling and shrinking
The hides are turning brown
Wrinkling and stinging.

As you bury yourself

Deep in the dust
Of the sandiest grave you can find
It's a new desert life.

To be reborn again
Out of glass and of sand
And you're shimmering and you are clear.

This is where
The water is shallow and nothing is as deep
As you hoped it would be.

And this drought will burn
And everything's falling, everything's falling, everything's falling
Out of place.

Everything's falling, everything's falling, everythings falling,
out of place (x2)

And you're glimmering and you are clear.


And here is a good quote from "The Incredulity of Fathe Brown" by G.K. Chesterton.
"I hope it's not against your principles to vist a modern sort of emperor like Merton" (Captian Wain, speaking to Father Brown, a priest and amateur detective who is the main character, speaking of Mr. Merton who is an very American with incredible amounts of power.)
"Not at all," said Father Brown, quietly. "It is my duty to visit prisoners and all miserable men in captivity."
