Comments temporarily shut off b/c we're neglecting the place and spam is accumulating.

The assorted meanderings, rantings, and pontifications of... us!

Topics may include, but will not be limited to: feminism, hockey, atheism, shoes, politics, fat acceptance, fitness, skepticism, dancing, introversion/HSP issues, and anything else that happens to be on my mind.

Heaven help the children...

The torture of foreign nationals must be getting close to being old hat in North America.

I am shocked that we as a civilized nation can allow this sort of thing to go on. What is more shocking is the complacent nature of our citizenry and our elected officials on the illegal and unjust nature of these detainments.

As the news article says, the boy was 15 years old when his alleged crime took place. When we make war on children how can we justify anything else that we do?

The War on Terror casts an indiscriminate net far and wide. We shatter the lives of innocent human beings. For what? Security? Defending democracy? What utter nonsense.
