His cigarette had gone out, and he laid it carefully on the edge of the table. He would finish smoking it after work, if he could keep the tobacco in it. Quite likely the person at the next table was a spy of the Thought Police, and quite likely he would be in the cellars of the Ministry of Love within three days, but a cigarette end must not be wasted.

Valentine's Day and it snowed today! This place hasn't given me snow for decades! It was either ice or hail.

The mountains look beautiful.

I can't wait to go back home. I am so ready to leave behind all the schoolwork and the hassle of deadlines. I am ready to leave this town.

I know I have to be back in three months....but I don't want to think about that right now.

On November 5, 2006, Saddam Hussein was found guilty of crimes against humanity in ordering the deaths of 148 Shi'ite villagers in the town of Dujail in 1982 and sentenced to death by hanging. His half brother and the judge at the trial of the original case in 1982 were also convicted of similar charges. When the judge announced the verdict, Saddam shouted "God is the Greatest!" and "Long live Iraq. Long live the Iraqi people! Down with the traitors!"

According to the New York Times, Saddam Hussein's verdict and sentence will "come under review by the nine-judge appellate chamber of the trial court. There is no time limit for the appeal court's review, but Iraqi and American officials who work with the court said that the earliest realistic date for Mr Hussein's execution, assuming it stood up to review, would be next spring." Iraqi law requires executions to take place within 30 days of the end of the appeal process; however it also forbids the executions of people aged over 70 years old, a status Saddam Hussein acquires on 28 April 2007.

On November 5, 2006, President Bush called the trial "a milestone in the Iraqi people's efforts to replace the rule of a tyrant with the rule of law."
