Word for Saddam

This is the first time I've seen that spelling for "heinous", meaning
"shockingly evil or wicked".  I did a Google search on it and got about 170
hits, most of which were misspellings of "highness" and a few of which were
a surname.  Usually "heinous" is applied to acts, not people, as in "Rape is
a heinous crime."  I too have been interested by applications of the word to
Saddam rather than to his deeds.

  "Heiness" is one of the more interesting words I have heard to describe
Saddam.  It makes me wonder if anyone else has described him in that way.
