About 40 minutes of the two-hour 20/20 special on small TV was preempted last night by the Saddam execution. Oh, well. But as Rex Hammock suggests, ABC should put the show — especially the preempted parts — up online. (They had a few segments online as a preview at the 20/20 site.) Better yet, for this show of all shows, they should take each segment and put it up on YouTube: turn the big TV about small tv into small tv.

Don’t worry, somebody will do it…
It follows the same pattern.
Saddam is but an “accidental” content, the “subject” of the day, of the week, of the month, of the year.
Someday he will end in the “Archives” and one day he will be forgotten.
Coming up once in a while on the post of somebody ”like Saddam…”, like the ones before him and the ones after him.
He will disappear eaten by the flow of time that will have more new, more important things to report.
There will be another “subject” of the day, of the month, of the year…
