Today is Blog Against Torture Day. I don't think I can say much more than I did in 2006, including:

Torture is immoral and reprehensible. Dictators and tyrants engage in torture; free and democratic people reject it as being the tool of despots. To suggest that we as Americans should engage in torture is to turn from our belief in just methods of punishment as enshrined in the Eight Amendment. For America to embrace torture means that the terrorists have well and truly won: they have turned us into the sort of monsters we fight wars against.

Hi Pat,

I friended ya. I don't use my real name on El J so to ID myself.. I am the brunette with whom you brunched this weekend.

i truly enjoyed meeting you. You have a nice easy, open, friendly feel about your personality which was a joy. Feel free to friend back or add to filters at your pleasure, and naturally to change any of that at whim... I don't do drama. Just happiness :-)

Take Care!
