Saddam begins fresh hunger strike (BBC, 7/13/06)

Who knew that's how they worked? I too am on a hunger strike to protest the All-Star break wasting three perfectly good days of the Summer and will be on a fresh one after lunch.

Ah, a version of the Hollywood hunger strike that all the cool people are doing these days. Another great column by Mark Steyn, the beginning of which is too good not to quote:

Very old Hollywood joke: Starving beggar with tin cup: "I haven't eaten for three days."

Zsa Zsa Gabor: "Dahlink, I wish I had your will power."

Three? This year they are wasting four. C'mon guys, the wait for the start of the next Mariners' losing streak is killing me.
