Good Soldier Rice and the Tortuous Definition of Torture

*

Reading "Rice Defends Tactics Used Against Suspects" by Glen Kessler in the Washington Post reminded me of former President Clinton's statement during his appearance before the grand jury about the Monica Lewinsky affair. "It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is." Then there is always the admirable Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson): "Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Alice in Wonderland.

Did you write with the psedonyum of Mussafir in Urdu newspapers of Pakistan.

Nice blog.
 
Sorry, but no. I understand Urdu and
get by speaking it but cannot write Urdu. Have found many instances of sites that include "Musafir", especially related to a Bollywood film.

Thanks for visiting. Must be cold up there in Montana.
