Cashing in on the war

It didn't take long for a pack of those Iraqi-most-wanted playing cards -- the ones that the U.S. military issued to troops -- to show up on eBay. An Ohio man claims to have more than 2,000 copies of the packs, which he obtained by "calling in a few favors." Hmm - I think we'll pass.

If you want to check out a virtual pack, try the flip deck on Newsday's site.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is starting to rope in some of the faces on the cards. Iraq's top nuclear scientist has surrendered, and Saddam's half-brother has been captured as well.
