Lost generation

Lost generation – INQ7.netis my column for today.

Meanwhile, in Hell on Wheels By Hudson Morgan is this little tidbit:

Emprisoned on the grounds of one of his former palaces, Saddam Hussein is wearing sandals, gardening, and reading books about the ancient days when Baghdad was capital of the Islamic world. Other tidbits from the NYT fronter: He still proclaims himself the lawful ruler of Iraq and likes to ask prison officials for cigars. And when he exercises with some of his former comrades, says an Iraqi official, “They call each other by their old titles, Mr. Minister of this, Mr. Minister of that. It is as if nothing has changed.”
