Chicken Soup for the (Torturing) Soul

The New York Times profiles former LSU Law Professor, and writer of the Justice Department's turture memorandum, Jay S. Bybee.

Once again, the Times manages to see an empty glass as at least half full, commenting on the Judge's "kinder, gentler side," including the odd note at the end that Bybee apparently has, or had, a kazoo collection. Boy, that's hard hitting reportage. Does the Judge also think torture should be accompanied by clown shows?

It makes you wonder: would the Gray Lady, in a different era, remark on the gentle nature of Hermann Goering and his collection of diamond studded batons?
