What This Man Needs is A Night in the Box

Saddam appeared before a court to be tried for crimes against humanity. He defiantly declared he was not guilty and then as court dismissed, got into a minute long shoving match with the guards escorting him back to his cell.

It is too bad he isn't in that rural camp prison from the movie Cool Hand Luke. Shoving guards would certainly get him a night in the box. He would be stripped of his clothes, given a white, cotton gown, a metal bucket for his toilet and another bucket for his drinking water and be placed in a small, metal out house to spend some time alone. In the heat of Iraq that would not be a good place to be. Sometimes there is failure to communicate, because some men just can't be reached.


Other things that could get Saddam a night in the box as explained by floor walker, Mr. Carr:

Them clothes got laundry numbers on them. You remember your number and always wear the ones that has your number. Any man forgets his number spends a night in the box.

These here spoons you keep with you. Any man loses his spoon spends a night in the box.

There's no playing grab-a** or fighting in the building. You got a grudge against another man, you fight him Saturday afternoon. Any man playing grab-a** or fighting in the building spends a night in the box.

First bell's at five minutes of eight when you will get in your bunk. Last bell is at eight. Any man not in his bunk at eight spends the night in the box.

There is no smoking in the prone position in bed. To smoke you must have both legs over the side of your bunk. Any man caught smoking in the prone position in bed spends a night in the box.

You get two sheets. Every Saturday, you put the clean sheet on the top... the top sheet on the bottom... and the bottom sheet you turn in to the laundry boy. Any man turns in the wrong sheet spends a night in the box.

No one'll sit in the bunks with dirty pants on. Any man with dirty pants on sitting on the bunks spends a night in the box.

Any man don't bring back his empty pop bottle spends a night in the box.

Any man loud talking spends a night in the box. You got questions, you come to me. I'm Carr, the floor walker. I'm responsible for order in here. Any man don't keep order spends a night in the box.
