I suppose that eventually, photos of the exucution of Saddam Hussein will
leak out.

In the meantime, if you are curious, this is pretty much what it looks like.


Nazi war criminal Heinrich Himmler dead in his prison cell,
after committing suicide with cyanide.

Himmler in the above photo looks like he is taking a nap. No big deal, really.
Kill millions of people and then take a nap.

There isn't much you can say about such a death.

It isn't the death of a man or woman who, having lived a good and decent
life, and lived perhaps to a ripe age, die in bed with their relations and
loved ones around them.

It isn't the death of a great scientist or doctor who brought a cure to
a disease or who helped relieve human suffering.

It isn't the death of an artist or musician who brought beauty or song into
the world.

A death such as this, after the horror that has gone before it, just seems
almost anticlimactic.

If the stunted twin of hideousness is vacuousness, then the twin of evil
is simply emptiness.
