Did Saddam Have Head Lice? Views Differ

Did Saddam have head lice?
Bush, in his press briefing this morning, called Saddam a liar and said that nothing he says can be believed. So if Saddam says he's guilty of war crimes or crimes against humanity, will he be released from custody?

Bush also chastised the former dictator, saying, "you dug yourself a hole, and you layed in it." Ouch. Bush was asked what his views were about the capture and he said, "Good riddance." Double ouch.

Meanwhile, Rupert Murdoch, GE, Time Warner and other media giants are asking that before Saddam's execution, he be placed on a balcony somewhere with a rifle and allowed to get off a few more shots, just for old times sake, and just for the camera.
