One of the things that probably will not be resolved by the turmoil in Libya is how to spell the name of the guy who has been the dictator there for over forty years. Is it Gadhafi? Or is it Qaddafi?

I’ve also seen it spelled “Khaddafi”, “al-Gaddafi“, “Kaddafi”, and “Kadafi”.

I hope the next time there’s a revolution somewhere, the guy they overthrow is named Fred.
