UMN Prof guest blogging on the Volokh Conspiracy about gay marriage

Read it here.

Read his bio here.

Prof. Carpenter is one of the best teachers I've had in law school. I've heard him speak on the topic of gay marriage before, and he's been active in opposition to the Solomon Amendment at UMN Law. I recommend you check back and read his comments all week.

Torture

is reprehensible and the Dept of Defense should not be allowed to engage in it. But only DOD. Does torture and inhumane treatment provide good information? I would have to be shown mountains of evidence to believe. And even then, the treatment causes more p.r. problems than it solves when word gets out. And isn't that the long-term battle we're fighting, here?

Music Update

I picked up the new Wolf Parade CD, "Apologies to the Queen Mary," on Tuesday, and it's excellent. My special lady and I will be going to see them play at the 7th Street Entry on October 13, and then we'll see the Hold Steady on October 30 at First Avenue. It'll be a good month for music.
