Poll question: Hussein execution
I haven't watched any video, nor looked at photos of his death. How many have?

3. I tore off the front page of the NYT times and put it in the recycling.
WTF -- a guy on a scaffold on the front page of the newspaper? Like I need to be reminded how barbaric our world is while trying to eat my oatmeal?

OK, it's one thing that they hanged him. I'm against the death penalty, but I know others don't agree.

But what's with the need to SEE it? I've done my best to avoid the pictures, but even today there was a little picture in our paper.

It's sick. Our country is sick.

4. No
I hope never to see it. Or anyone's death, other than those who want me there when they go. What a sick world.

5. Waiting For Bush's Trial At The Hague
I am sure they can devise suitable punishment that will provide a lifetime of entertainment.

every newspaper here.

7. I am guessing
in a week or so I might be able to turn on a news program and not see any of it. Escaped it so far. I do NOT want to see any of it or hear what the news readers have to say. I am ashamed of it and sickened by it.

8. All I've seen is what has been on the news
and that was more than enough.

I find the execution of any human being despicable. I read another thread today about feeling sympathy for saddam and I guess I do too in a way. I think it is more sorrow for what he could have been than what he really was, though.
