TV Thought For the Day

There are some who say we have to torture suspected terrorists to keep something awful from happening, like a political assassination or a nuclear bomb attack.

But that Jack Bauer guy on "24" tortures people right and left and the show's already lost one President, hundreds of civilians to nerve gas attacks, and a chunk of California to terrorist nukes.

The lesson of "24" seems to be: torture doesn't keep us safe.
