I may write a longer MLA wrap-up post when I get back to the ‘ville, but for now, a couple of pointers to some interesting video links. First, The Washington Post has video footage (apparently taken from an Arabic television network) of Saddam Hussein being led to the gallows just before he was executed. It’s rather gruesome stuff, even if the video doesn’t show the actual hanging, but for some reason the footage reminds me of the Edison short, Execution of Czolgosz.
Unrelated: I’ve been planning to link to Steven’s discussion of a couple of NPR reports (report #2) on YouTube, but because of MLA, I haven’t had time. More later when I’m back in the ‘ville where my wireless internet access is free and fast.
