06/04/2004 Entry: "Morbid relics"

"WASHINGTON, JUNE 2: The pistol wielded by Saddam Hussein when he was captured in his spider hole last year isn’t the only war relic President Bush is fond of showing visitors to the White House. Recent guests tell us that Bush proudly displays two other iconic items in a study beside the Oval Office: a brick from Taliban leader Mohammad Omar’s home in Kandahar, and a roughly two-foot high cross made of steel recovered from the WTC wreckage.

"In this week’s issue, Time magazine discloses that Saddam’s pistol was given to Bush by military officials. The White House confirmed on Tuesday that he keeps the cross and the brick on display with the gun but gave no details. ‘‘They’re things that mark for him major events in the war on terror,’’ philanthropist George Vradenburg, who saw the President’s memorabilia in March said.
And more from the Prez’s trophy room, by Richard Leiby, The Indian Express, June 2, 2004

"One of the most morbid of death relics, and one which is rarely found outside museums today, is the legendary 'Hand of Glory'. This was the hand of a hanged man, dried and used either as a five-branched candle itself or as a candle-holder for a candle made from the fat of the hanged man's body. It was supposed to have magical powers to make its possessor either invisible or to help him to carry out robberies by hypnotizing everyone in the house or building that was being burgled. (Crimes And Punishment: The Illustrated Crime Encyclopedia, Volume 17)."
