Holy Dick Cheney’s Situational Ethics, did Monday’s piece strike a nerve with some folks. A couple of sites have asked to republish it, which is nice, the traffic has been great, which is wonderful, but the comments have really been the best. Apparently I’m not alone in feeling like a helpless little ant watching his world crumble.
Political commentary isn’t really my bag, but sometimes essays simply write themselves and last week’s publication of the torture report stirred up that one. Zappa’s “The Torture Never Stops” has been my earworm since I read the news, so I dug through my playlist and found a few other songs about torture.
These are bleak times. Happy wallowing:
“Torture,” The Cure.
“Torture Me,” The Damned.
“Torture,” The Psychedelic Furs.
“The Torture Never Stops,” Frank Zappa.
“Torture,” Rival Sons.
“Chinese Torture,” Queen.
“Torture,” The Jacksons.
