I love some things I find

I love this story. My only question: Why wouldn't they let him use a BlackBerry for crying out loud?

On a more serious note, President (God, I love saying that) Obama decided to close Guantanamo today. For further information, see the TNG episode "The Drumhead". I'll leave you with this quote:

"You know, there are some words I've known since I was a
schoolboy: ' With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech
censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains
us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie as wisdom and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on we’re all damaged. I fear that today...
