    So we've got a nation holding terrorism suspects on flimsy evidence, and concern that they were the victims of an unfair trial system.

    This is what happens when you cede the moral high ground. You help yourself for the day, but hurt yourself in the long run when others claim the same right to do what you do.

    Do what I say, not what I do? Is that about the only objection we can raise to what appears to be an injustice?

    Let me be the first to say that if they ask for volunteers to colonize Mars, I'll be the first to go. Hopefully, I'll be the only one. ;)
