Based on the news that is coming out of Iraq today, what I dreamt about last night is all the more interesting. Last night’s dream featured newsflashes across the major networks and the Internet. In the dream, Cal Thomas, who was in Iraq for whatever reason, had been kidnapped by Iraqi insurgents and immediately beheaded. None of this 24 or 72 hour waiting, or anything — it was immediate.
CNN.com had huge, 32 point font headlines about it, and the Chicago Tribune was all over the story as well.
I woke up, convinced this had happened. Strangely enough, though, I can’t say that I can remember ever having read, in full, any Cal Thomas column in my life.
