Saddam Coverage

SADDAM COVERAGE….Well, I’m impressed. This morning’s LA Times devoted the entire first 19 pages to the capture of Saddam Hussein, running 17 stories in all. I’m not sure there was really that much to say about it, but it sure goes to show what a major daily can do when it marshals its forces.

And was the coverage any good? Beats me. Who has time to read that much?
