E-mail: “Another question I would have to ask of Kerry is what, exactly, does he mean by ‘I’m not talking about some cushy situation where they live off the fat of the land in prison. I’m talking about tough.’ This would be an interesting question, especially with Abu Ghraib as background. How do you purposefully make prisons ‘tough,’ on a day to day basis, for the prisoners. It seems like an escape clause to win votes, but with zero substance.”
Me: I’m guessing it means no TV—a fate worse than death!
