    His name is not English and was not constructed from English letters. Because of regional dialects and because the English language does not have exact substitutes for sounds/letters in Arabic, his name was transliterated however each writer saw fit. I don't know that there is an accepted convention, or even if there was, if it would change again anyway (a la "Mao Tse-tung" changing into "Mao Zedong"). They also used to use terms like "Moslem" and variations of "Musselman" interchangeably with "Muslim." "Muslim" seems to be the standard spelling these days.

    Could we get Sarah Palin to wear one and hope for the same results?

    A Fez.

    He went into the wrong line of work. He would have made a better designer or stylist than dictator.

    Colonel Gaddafi: tyrant, lunatic, fashion icon

    Say what you will about about the recently ousted despot, but nobody rocks a caftan, an old towel, or a set of epaulettes like Colonel Gaddafi. His fashion influences seem to range from Michael Jackson to Gandhi to the Phantom Stranger and back again. I especially like his penchant for glueing pictures of martyrs and dead dictator friends to suits. That's inspired. That's punk rock. He was one of the last true originals in totalitarian fashion. Sure we have Kim Jong Il, but his genderless pantsuits are too Hilary Clinton for my taste. Burma and Fiji have dashing dictators and I see promise in Belarus' Alexander Lukashenko, but I, for one, will miss seeing my Muammar in a cape and Yoko Ono sunglasses on the evening news.

    We haven't had such a sartorially splendid strongman since Stroessner kicked the bucket:

    Thanks for that article. I'm sitting here at a lecture my business partner is giving and it's all I can do to not giggle.

    His looks range from Miami Vice to Michael Jackson. From military chic to something my grandmother would have worn. From fur trapper to a Hilary Clinton pantsuit. How versatile and innovative!

    I hope they find his closet.
