Heaven And Hell Share Top Billing

I can't imagine two who represent the very broadest ends of the spectrum when it comes to human beings than Gerald Ford and Saddam Hussein. How amazing it was that they shared top billing in yesterday's news cycle.

I'm about the biggest Democrat around, but Gerald Ford's passing hit me hard. Maybe at the time, I groused about him pardoning Nixon, but you know he was a decent man and was blessed with a good dose of common sense and a backbone as well. Why I was so affected or effected (too lazy to look up the right word) is because he seems to have been a dying breed of Republican. I wish some of the bozos today would look to him as a role model. Our country needs a serious shakeup in leadership on both sides of the aisle.

And in a strange way, Saddam's passing was not a cause for celebration for me. I would have preferred he stayed locked up in a little prison cell. I can't find much hope in anything connected with the war in Iraq.
