Torture cartoon is no laughing matter

Is this the kind of country we want to live in and be proud of? writes Bob Mabee

I write this in regards to a cartoon on your editorial page regarding torture: I have yet to decide what is more disturbing the fact that our government, under the leadership of a Christian family man, thinks that torture is OK, or that this subject is somehow humorous.

Is this the kind of country we want to live in and be proud of?

Is this the kind of country where new immigrants, some escaping this type of treatment in their home country, will want to immigrate?

It’s truly time to give ourselves a collective shake, and think about just where this path leads.
