What is it about wackos and hygiene?: The Howard Hughes/Saddam comparison deserves to be brought to light. What's interesting is that these gentlemen, leaving all other issues aside, all share fanatical hygiene hang-ups. Hughes thought staying in a lightless, airless, foodless environment was apt to make him MORE healthy. Saddam seems to need to bathe 2-3-4 times a day. Different drug, same addiction. Hmmm, anyone else have these issues? Say, Michael Jackson? Now he's got his kid wearing veils to "protect against kidnapping." This from the guy who wears surgical masks and gloves as a matter of course. Anyway, that's your tipping point. When you obsess over hygiene, it's time to call for the men in the white coats.
