A little over 400 years ago, Shakespeare knew it. In The Merchant of Venice, Portia says: "I fear you speak upon the rack, Where men enforced do speak anything."

Thursday, hitting the ground running, President Obama signed an executive order putting an end to "enhanced interrogation techniques", including waterboarding.

This i
s a very, very, very, very, very good thing.

And there are more good things to come. I'm sure of it.

That picture immediately reminded me of the animations from Pink Floyd's The Wall. Creepy but you can't help but look.

Yeah, it really grabbed me and illustrates far better than a photo the horrors involved, I think.

I totally agree with you. We, Americans are better than that.
