For those of you missing the thrilling coverage of Michael Jackson's trial on E! Entertainment Television, there's a new trial coming to town. It seems that Saddam Hussein's trial will be televised, so get your popcorn ready, grab the remote, call up the E! experts and start watching on October 19th.
Unfortunately, there won't be a motley cast of actors recreating this trial for us. Nor will they call in Rikki Klieman, Shawn Chapman Holley, or Howard Weitzman for blow by blow commentary. However, Hussein is on trial for his crimes against humanity, so at least there is some similarity between the trials.
If Hussein is lucky, he'll be acquitted on all counts and make an album to recover costs shortly thereafter. If he is unlucky, well, there may just be an electric chair with his name on it.
