 Or this:

In all the years you’ve been doing this, how often can you say that we’ve produced truly legitimate intelligence? Once? Twice? Ten times? Give me a statistic; give me a number. Give me a pie chart, I love pie charts. Anything, anything that outweighs the fact that if you torture one person you create ten, a hundred, a thousand new enemies.

Some good news. Sen Rob Portman has changed his stance on gay marriage after his son came out to him. Looks like the state of Illinois is in tje process of passing a gay marriage bill. Also one of tjlthe lawyers involved in the prop 8.Supreme Court hearing is predicting Prop 8 will upheal and gay mariage will.become law in California. Hopefully same vote will happen in the DOMA vote.

Thanks for those pics, Pics. I saw those early early this morning and have been making plans for today's post. :D

Busy day, pain of a commute coming and going. But there is something wonderfully inspiring about ascending on the escalator from the train platform as a singer in the station is belting out a very good operatic version of "Oh, what a beautiful Mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I've got a beautiful feelin'
Everything's goin' my way."

Great news about Sen Rob Portman. He just wants for his son the same as his other children. It just shows that it is a basic right for all people.
