Saddam is dead. Or maybe not. The Washington Post is running a great story tomorrow that is no less fascinating for the fact that it doesn't answer a single damn question.

To wit: US officials are convinced that Saddam Hussein was in the bunker when the cruise missiles hit on Wednesday night. Some are privately exultant that he's dead. Some think he got away. He made several videotapes before the attack so that they could be released after his death or injury to make it look like he's still alive. And the coolest touch: his ex-girlfriend is convinced that the guy on the tape isn't Saddam.

Three bylines plus two contributing reporters equal no answers. But I love this story anyway.
