Only a Phone Call Away

A woman in Grand Island, Nebraska, whose son is a lt.-col. in the army, got a phone call yesterday.

“He told me that he was going to wash his hair and brush his teeth in Saddam’s private bathroom,” Gloria Presnell said. “The only thing I could say to him was, ‘I hope you use your own toothbrush.’”
