Kill Yr Idols


The Guardian has your slice of Iraq glumness for the day: The Iraqi who took a sledgehammer to the base of Saddam's statue in Baghdad now regrets ever doing so.

I regret tearing down the statue. The Americans are worse than Saddam, and we are in the fifth year of their occupation. Every day is worse than the previous day.

And so on. What's needed: A surge of 21,000 (or 30,000) sculptors to build some new tear-downable statues and help Iraqi bodybuilders get their grooves back.
