My friend Not Very Bright, asked me a couple days ago to answer the question “How is torture different, morally speaking, from accepted techniques of warfare?” And NVB generously offered me a guest column on his space to answer that. I’m, not sure if I did it very well, but go over there and let me know. Or tell him to pull the plug on my post. Either way, you should read Not Very Bright regularly. It’s good for what ails ya.
