Of Marriage and Torture

Returning to the focus on simply archiving the news of note, here's what one can refer to about the Democratic candidates' thoughts on gay marriage during the coming months of the new presidential campaign. I think it's particularly interesting that: 1) the title is "Democrats Voice Support" when half of them do not support gay marriage, and 2) that you have to scroll halfway down to get Hillary and Obama's views (SPOILER ALERT: They're the two besides John Edwards who don't support it). I think it's indicative of the NYT knowing that the American public is far more left of the candidates on this issue.

In other news, apparently now you don't even have to be a threat to be tortured.
