    Al-Sadr draws up a second-half strategy in the locker room at the break.

    Why do I keep having the feeling this guy's the next Saddam?

    Meet the new boss, etc.
     
  2. Allawi's the next Saddam.
    A bloodthirsty sectarian strongman with the backing of influential Americans.

    'I direct the Mahdi Army to suspend all its activity for six months, until it is restructured in a way that helps honor the principles for which it was formed," Sadr said in a statement from his stronghold in Najaf.

    Could be that his forces are taking some hard blows themselves.

    Or the "rogue elements" just shows how dysfunctional this family of humanity is and why a few good earthquakes would do the whole world better.

    Can someone keep me updated? My affiliate broke in with severe thunderstorm coverage.

    Without a doubt, the report is focusing on a community 70 miles outside the core viewing area that has a population of, oh, 35.

    Halftime. Good. I need to go to the restroom. Anyone want a beer on my way back?

    And the storm will be passing over Miller's Abandoned Goat Farm at 3:21 p.m., the intersection of Rural Route 141 and Digsby's Path at 3:27 and Woodson Pond at 3:29:23.
