Torture, moon dust, and no-longer-theoretical molecules

Must read: "The focus on water-boarding misses the main point of the program. Which is that it was a program." (I said it before, and now that it's a hot topic again, I'll say it again: if you're not outraged by the torture issue, I can't understand why not.)
