Sleeping in the wet spot...

Unfortunately that's not as good as it sounds. The fever got so bad last night that I woke up and literally thought I'd wet the bed... except somehow I was dry from the bellybutton down. I went to bed at 10 last night, and did the 'watch the clock/twist and turn/go throw up' thing until about quarter of six, when I finally fell asleep for a full hour.

Woke up just in time to see a BEAUTIFUL sunrise, then went back to bed till about 10:30. And that's where we came into this story (no pun intended).

The achy feels quite a bit better today. At least in the legs and head. The back hurts, but I suspect that's from the coughing. I can't talk much, which I'm sure you all know is horrendously miserable for me, and I think the fever is starting to take another bad swing.

Thank GOODNESS for the roomie bringing me stuff like soup. And water. And soup. And toilet paper. And soup.

I think I'm going to go back to bed for a while.

The trouble with CA

When you've got a fever, so you want to open the window to cool off, but it's sixty two degrees out (but the windchill is only sixty). Not very cooling. Yes, I posted this just to gloat about Boston's 20 below wind chill.

Sick, but still a bastard

As hard as I try, I can't understand this...

I can understand detaining someone because they're on a list of 'people with possible terrorist links'-- a day, maybe even so long as a week if there seems to be SUBSTANTIAL evidence against them.

But... how can our government justify shipping someone off to be tortured by SYRIAN TORTURE EXPERTS for TEN MONTHS?

It's not right. I don't know that there's any way to justify it. Crap, if it was Osama himself, humanitarians wouldn't allow that to happen. How can it be allowed to happen to someone who was just changing planes, and not even stopping here?

Besides, Ashcroft added, the torturers had expressly promised that they would not torture him.

Uh... okay.

I'm wembling on whether or not to allow comments here, because I don't want a buttload of "That's bullshit" replies-- I realize it is. So if you want to add something constructive (from either side of the argument) go ahead. But if you're just going to rant, do it somewhere else. I'm still sick, and I don't want to deal with it.


Additional info

Edit: As mentioned, the article was written by a Mt. Holyoke law professor. How he knows so much is confusing, too. The Additional Info points to some Canadian news sources. But I couldn't find a word on CNN.com.
