I have to say that I have found the heavy coverage of Saddam Hussein’s execution in the blogosphere somewhat macrabe. It seems to me more like cleaning up a mess than something to obsess about. It’s unpleasent, but you do what you have to because the world is better place for doing it. But I can’t see the point of the endless bulletins, updates, live blogging, etc. (I’m not sure what all, because I tuned it out). In my view, it would be additional deserved punishment to treat it as no more important than cleaning up an industrial spill.
