I’m watching the cable networks and they’re scrambling to keep track of three high-profile funerals. They’re lining up in California to pay respects to former President Gerald Ford, in Georgia to pay respects for the Godfather of Soul James Brown, and Iraq has to get Saddam into the ground within 24 hours, according to Muslim law.  Now if only Fidel Castro would cooperate and give us a two-dictator weekend.
