Seb at Sadly, No! points out (via e-mail) that I was wrong a couple of days ago when I said that the recent "WE BAG THE BUM" headline in the New York Daily News was a rerun of a News headline about Manuel Noriega -- in fact, the earlier occurrence of the headline was in reference to the capture of the Achille Lauro hijackers in 1985 (back then it was "BUMS," not "BUM").

I still think the seizure of Saddam is going to make about as much difference in our day-to-day lives here in America as the seizure of Noriega did -- not much difference at all. (And it's nice to see that John Glenn agrees that Saddam wasn't much of a threat to us over here.)
