Halloween night .. I heard about waterboarding and Mukassey on the way home drive .. NPR.
Talking about how IF he admitted waterboarding was torture, then alot of his friends in high places would have to go to jail.

Making parallels in my mind with the witch trial custom in Salem where women were put into water. If they drowned, they were innocent of witchcraft. If they floated, they were a witch and were put to death.

How far we haven't come.

Heard a Spanish woman talking about WHY she thought her husband and son were blown up in the Madrid bombings (trials were today and the Socialists in Spain were alot more fair-handed legally than the goons of Guantanamo) - anyway she said it was because the Spanish were participating in the Iraq war.

Torture increases terrorism. It's got to be.


One good story


WASHINGTON -- October 31, 2007: Interrupting FCC Chairman Kevin Martin's opening remarks at Wednesday's FCC localism hearing was a woman dressed in a skimpy French maid's outfit, who successfully fended off two security guards' efforts to oust her from the room.

Samantha Miller, appearing on behalf of anti-consolidation group Code Pink, added some activist touches to her Halloween costume by writing the word faux in marker across her bosom, along with references to major media outlets like ABC, Viacom, and Disney elsewhere on her body.


"A grieving father won a nearly $11 million verdict Wednesday against a
fundamentalist Kansas church [aka Fred Phelps] that pickets military
funerals out of a belief that the war in Iraq is a punishment for the
nation's tolerance of homosexuality."
