Forgive a bit of comic relief --

but I just had an amusing dream, after reading to my six year old.

My six year old loves Tom Sawyer, really loves him...

In the dream, George Bush was Tom Sawyer. Injun Joe was Osama/Zawahiri.
Muff Potter was Saddam Hussein. So much fits.

But... this particular Potter, Hussein, wouldn't be so nice if fully 
restored to power.
(The US has already begun facing the inevitable, in the face of opposition 
-- particularly
Shia opposition or even just lack of cooperation -- and put Baathists back 
into power more
and more in more and more places, seeing alternatives as even worse.)

But I wonder -- which comes next? Wandering in the cave or Huckleberry Finn?

Or does the analogy break down, and we go to some of those Biblical type 
so many other children love? Our imagination can be such a powerful force..

Best of luck to us all...
