What's Happening Now

Triumph of hope over experience: Pro-Georgian blogger asks Russian government to defend his free speech rights.

Got the flu in Britain? Need medical help? No problem! The government health service will put a 16-year-old on the phone with you.

President Obama claims U.S. private-care doctors remove tonsils too often. That's a problem the family of this 16-year-old in Britain wishes their government health service had.

A picture editorial: ObamaCare is "shovel ready."

A blogger's letter to [email protected]

The BBC wonders: Why do Hollywood movies about autistic people focus on the very few who have savant abilities? I wonder: Why is BBC surprised to find Hollywood being unrealistic?

Waterboarding for Charity

Blogger Charlie Martin offers to be waterboarded for charity.

Dittos here. I'd do it on the same terms for autism research. Assuming the U.S. government waterboarding experts are willing to do it for charity (I DON'T volunteer to have it done by random nutcases from the Daily Kos), is anyone out there willing to put up the funds?

Might as well turn a little part of this waterboarding controversy into something useful. So, far, it's been nothing but harm.

P.S. Pass it on: If thousands of Americans volunteer to be waterboarded for charity, will it be regarded as torture any more?

Hat tip: VodkaPundit.
