You have our word on it!

Some things just make you chuckle... I don't know which statement in this ABC news quote is more absurd?

"The (U.S.) government says it has a policy not to send detainees anywhere they are likely to be tortured. Courts have ruled that the government's word is sufficient." (High court turns down Gitmo detainees' appeal)

It's nice to know that torturers have a policy of protecting detainees from being tortured, and it's also reassuring that a government that lies about things like, say, justification for war and torture can be taken on its word.

Lines and Buoys

Ample sun here this past weekend! Never a better opportunity to take a walk around Fisherman's Terminal and take in all the the contrasting colors of sky, buoys and boat bumpers, and sweeping lines floating on the calm lapping waters of Salmon Bay.
