The Final Countdown


MSNBC has added a little "deadline" ticker to its broadcast. It tells me that Saddam has just under 35 hours to hit the bricks. I wonder when Saddam has less than an hour if MSNBC will add seconds to the ticker, then maybe tenths of seconds like an NBA game.

And once the deadline passes does the ticker go away or do we get a "deadline plus" ticker? Whatever happens, the theme music for the ticker is a no brainer.
