In 2003, someone from the White House wrote a 83-page “memo” on authorized or unauthorized torture (depending on your view of things). Apparently, the president deemed that some folks were exempt from real laws and such. Sitting back and pondering this small news bit this morning….you have to wonder who sits around and writes memos of 83 pages. Somewhere in my past, I was taught that a memo was three pages max. Once you got past three pages….it got deemed as a summary or paper. Pondering a bit more….you have to wonder who sits around in the White House and write 83 pages on how to authorize torture and what their real job is in life or how they got qualified to be such an authority.
