Saddam Hussein goes to a "Lit!" reading: "The line-up for Lit! included Bob Powers, who writes one of my favorite websites, Girls Are Pretty. Bob read two brilliant pieces, in brilliant fashion. Frankly he rather reminded me of myself, if I'm allowed to say that, in terms of delivery. I really wanted to go up and talk to him after the reading and say something like, 'Hi, Bob, I m Saddam Hussein, and I'm a big fan of Girls Are Pretty.' My hope was that maybe Bob would have heard of me too and that we could have talked about writing, only this never happened because my friends and I left before the show was over."
