Habeas Schmabeas

Today definitely qualifies as a beautiful day,


so I went for a short hike. This is what I listened to. It's "This American Life: Habeus Schmabeus." Even if you're up on the subject, it's worth listening to this show. It's an updated version of one they did a year or so ago. Two former prisoners at Guantanamo are interviewed. Really nice guys; could be bloggers! One of them was "sold" to the U.S. government for something he wrote in a satirical political magazine.

After you've listened to the show (or even if you don't), you can sign this petition at the ACLU website, to help find Habeus and bring him back.

A nice plus about this petition form: when you pull down the selection of titles, you can choose from the usual titles, plus "Mr. and Mr." or "Ms. and Ms."
