OVERHEARD IN SEATTLE...In my neighborhood coffee house this morning, three wizened Seattle peace activists were reading the newspaper and lamenting the war in Iraq. They were pointing to a page in today's Seattle Times that has pictures of both Shi'ite gangster/preacher Muqtada al-Sadr and Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, deputy chief of U.S. military operations in Iraq.
Muqtada al-Sadr Brig.Gen. Mark Kimmitt
The conversation went something like this:
Look at that guy.
Yeah, he's one mean looking dude.
God, I hate that guy. I just hate the way he looks.
I hate that guy.
Have you ever heard him speak?
No, but the way he looks. It just makes me want to kill him.
