Major world events (like the news of Saddam's capture) will sometimes spark a major current of human creativity and inspiration. Sometimes, this is not the case.
I was surprised and pleased to read the headlines this morning and learn that the U.S. had Saddam in custody. I figure the capture is more symbolic than strategic at this point, but it can't be a "bad thing." Not more than a minute later did I think, "Fuck, this is huge points for W." I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought that.
