The news item about Kim Jong Il offering sanctuary to Saddam Hussein brings
to mind the old Jack Benny joke: “Your money or your life!” “Lemme think a
minute.” Something like this: GWB–”Okay, Saddam, the deal is, you can
cower in your bunker, waiting to become a target for our guided munitions,
and end up buried alive beneath several hundred tons of concrete rubble.
**OR**, you can spend the rest of your life in Pyongyang watching movies
with Kim Jong Il in his private screening room. What’s it to be?” Saddam:
“Mmmmmm…. How long do I have to think about this?”
