Interesting Reads 5-16-2009

The most thought provoking thing I read this week came from Mark Thoma’s Truth, Justice and the American Way:

We should waterboard Cheney to get the truth about what happened regarding the interrogations. He says it’s not torture, there’s no lasting damage, and it works, so what are we waiting for? I want the ad revenue from the live broadcast.

I can’t believe we are allowing the torture debate to be redefined to be about whether it works, and who knew what when. No matter who knew about it, or when they knew about it, it was wrong and those responsible – Republican or Democrat, whomever – need to be held accountable.

Please read the full post and think about it for a few minutes.

On to something lighter, the funniest thing I saw this week was this Animation: Recession Sing a Long!
