HICKS CONVICTED

David “Puffy D” Hicks is looking at seven years:

David Hicks will be home within two months and has agreed to testify against other terrorist suspects.

He was formally convicted last night of providing material support to terrorism and will receive a maximum of seven years in jail as part of a plea deal agreed this week.

Meanwhile, Dave’s dad is upset about his kid stacking on the pounds:

Prisoners in Guantanamo Bay are offered a diet of up to 5000 calories a day, 2 1⁄2 times the recommended daily intake for Americans.

David Hicks’ father, Terry, has criticised the food his son has been given while in captivity.

Yeah. There was too much of it. That must be why Hicks described Guantanamo Bay as “like a Nazi concentration camp”; everyone remembers those morbidly obese prisoners waddling out of Dachau in 1945. Why, some of the mass graves at Auschwitz were only big enough for one person.

This week’s column is Dave-related.
