Totalitarianism Today gives me more credit than I deserve in a recent link to my post about a Washington Post story detailing the arrest and detention of Mohammed Attis, who is being held on an outrageous bond, has not been charged and has not been privy to the evidence presented against him. Totalitarianism says "Postwatch explains why the whole thing 'sounds fishy.' " I wish I had! Totalitariansim actually does explain:
Meanwhile, critics continue to question the keeping of evidence from an American citizen who, by law, should be informed of the charges against him and the reasons for those charges. Without such information, a defense is impossible
However, you lose me when talking about "respect[ing] the decision of Chinese women to prostitute themselves" while adding that "marriage itself is an enlightened form of long-term prostitution." Then again, you have a priceless link to Penn, of Penn & Teller, and his tale of an overly friendly TSA screener and Penn's Fight-The-Power reaction.
I need an aspirin.
