FOR IDI AMIN, COMEDY WAS EASY but dying is hard. Killing came easily to him, too.

Meanwhile a letter in the Washington Post notes:

The Hussein sons remind me that Idi Amin had a son much like them, swaggering around Kampala armed, raping and killing with viciousness and, of course, impunity. I wonder whether he has been living comfortably in Jiddah.

I wonder, too. As Mark Steyn notes, “At least in this instance, unlike their more recent subventions, the House of Saud began giving money to a mass murderer after he’d stopped killing. ”
