On Torture

I must say the recent resurfacing of the so-called "torture" issue in the public square has been something of an education for me. I find it rather embarrassing, actually. To air these discussions in public, I mean.

And the fact that there exist actual memos - in writing - to be summoned and pored over, and grandstanded by the perfumed princes in Congress? Look, call me old-fashioned, but this whole episode is just strangely foreign to me. In my day, they didn't want to know, and we didn't want to tell them. Seems to me everyone was happier that way and things functioned more smoothly anyway.

Clearly, I have a lot of catching up to do.
