Meanwhile, the Times does damn well in covering torture

Just to be fair myself. This week has seen revelations of serious, longstanding, and organized abuse of prisoners by one of the Army's most elite units, more abuse at Guantanamo (actually an AP story), and the conviction of an Army dog handler from Abu Ghraib, though we'll see what kind of punishment he actually gets. I don't have great confidence.

Sometimes I wish we still had our crazy right-wing commenter around, if only because she did a good job of representing the cognitive dissonance of those who Just Cannot Deal with the fact that our government now tortures people.

Most of the time I'm glad she's gone.

    Torture is a good issue for blindered limousine liberals to get upset about. Protests defending workers' rights in France? That's a little messier for them.

    (not that state-sanctioned torture is not important and horrible)
