High Time For Torture by Richard Thieme

I wanted to just post the whole thing here, but I didn't want the NSA to think I wrote it. Don't assume by that little quip that I'm against domestic surveillance, because really it would be a little flattering to have anybody read this junk. We can just think of it has always having the possibility that someone, somewhere is paying attention to us.

See, it's not so bad.

Incidentally, Jonathan Swift was an old crack-up. There was a time in Great Brittain when everyone was very worried about if the islands could grow enough food for the growing populations. Economists and the sort went wild with arguments of poverty and overpopulation. Swift submitted: A Modest Proposal. "Brilliant in it's simplicity," as those clever fellows say.

There may or may not be a theme here, besides my giddy infatuation with satire of course.
