With the announced retirement of Charlton "From my cold, dead hands" Heston and the recent retirement of Saddam "Mother of all battles" Hussein, I now see both men being so much alike.

Hehe. A couple of months ago The Onion had a funny "news story" entitled, 'Iraq, Kentucky, vie for World Shooting-Into-The-Air Supremacy'. Same photo of Saddam.

On the serious side, about a dozen people a year in the U.S. are killed or severely injured as a result of shooting live ammunition into the air to celebrate New Years and other occasions. I'm sure it's just as bad or worse in countries like Iraq, Iran or Palestine. Seems like a pretty pointless death if you ask me.
