No, Sadam Husain is perfectly alive and well, and is currently running my local corner shop.

Saddam Hussein on the other hand was found and hanged.

Comment: I was told that Christmas was not originally a Christian holiday,
and instead it was a pagan holiday that the Catholic church incorporated
into Christmas. I have also heard that in the past the Catholic church
used the Christmas time to persecute the Jews. I would like to if any of
this is true and everything I can on the origins of Christmas.

No. He smokes Camel Lites, which are almost, but not quite cigarettes.

Comment: I heard that they are recalling peanut butter that was from a
foreign country. I heard that it was poisonous, and no name brand was
mentioned! Is there any truth to this rumor? Thank you for your help in
this very IMPORTANT matter!

Man if only there was some sort of method for distributing information to people.

We could put print the information on pieces of paper and distribute the information throughout the country. No that would never work.

We could have a person announce the news and use powerful transmitters to... broadcast let's say... the announcement over the air, where receivers in people's homes could copy the broadcast and display it on a screen of some sort. Naw that's just silly.

We could create a giant grid of interconnected computers, a network or "Internet" if you will, that could trade information... oh no really. What kind of science fiction is that?

I also heard that this peanut butter has eighteen legs, answers to the name of "Marvin," and is bent on world domination!

Comment: I heard that there would be new technology introduced through the
TV cable/satelite providers that in 2010 if you didnt have a certain
technolgy on your TV (older TV's would not have it) you would not be able
to view these services. True or false?
I think of all the senior citizens who have older TVs and with that being
their primary entertainment this would be cruel and nasty.

Apparently this commenter already has been cut off from TV services. Those digital warnings are only in every commercial break, newscast and talk show.

I'm sure the government never realized this might inconvenience a tiny fraction of the population. In that case, forget about freeing up the bandwidth; let's not do it after all.

Comment: My grandmother absolutely refuses to shop at any Wal Mart store.
She was told (years ago) that Wal Mart's products (unsure which ones) come
from foreign countries who employ young children in sweatshops. Not sure
where or when she was told this, but I would love to put this rumor to
rest. Can you prove or disprove this? Of course, I am inclined to
believe that this could never be true, but my grandmother isn't
satisfied...she would need proof. How can I get this proof?
