Hunger Strike? Keep it up buddy.

Many conflicting reports on Saddam and his cronies' hunger strike. I don't have any inside info on how they're being treated, but the reports of the brutal ex-dictator's new life gardening, writing poetry, and living in a 12'x15' cell don't make me feel especially sorry for him. Apparently, he's not allowed to see his family either.

Except for the gardening and the spacious living quarters (I share a 12'x12' room with another captain) his life sounds somewhat familiar.

If his hunger strike is still going on, I encourage him with the immortal words of Dan Rather: "Courage." Also, I hope he gets to see his family real soon; at least his two sons, that is.
