They Must Not Take The Precious!

Fox News seems to be going through a greiving process around the loss of Congress to the Dems and the Presidents toxic popularity. That makes sense. The only question I have is, does this represent "Bargining" or are they still back in "Denial"?

24 And Torture

Geoff and I are having a debate about the dipiction of torture on one of his favorite shows "24". I say the show is de-sensitizing people to the use of torture by showing it as always effective in a tight situation (basically the way the president sells it). I point out that when the US tortures or detains folks on a terrorism charge, they hold them for years, long after any potential information would be useless.

Andrew Sullivan as an interesting view here.
