Makin' a claim to the ultimate souvenir*

Well, let me see ... what is the most interestin' story goin' at the moment? Oh, that the U. S. Army wants to fill in Saddam's Hidey-Hole. I say No! No! No! Dig that baby up, sling it under a helicopter and fly it back to the US. I want that in the Smithsonian Institute. Spoils of war, baby!

*Zempt has the best spellchecker of any program I have ever used.**

**I say that and then find it don't even recognize its own name.

Zempf is a bit of a pain to use. ieSpell does a good job and works for forms, comments, and other stuff, too--anything in I.E.

Dig it up and auction it off. It could pay for building a school and a couple of hospitals.

And why not make it a tourist attraction? Charge a few dinars for people to tour through it and maybe extra to let them get down in the hole. Sheesh. No way is the hole he was found in going to become a shrine! Especially if you paste pictures of his capture all over the place. ;)
