    There are very few absolutes.

    We all agree torture is wrong, where we disagree is what is considered torture. Therefore there is room for a healthy debate on this issue.

    As much as I considered Colmes a "token" liberal view they at least brought on guests of opposing view points.

    but to answer your first point when the weather calls for 10 to 12 inches and I adjust my work schedule and see schools cancelled only to see the storm veer off at the last minute and we get a light dusting I do get pissed off.

      The forecast of snow was an opinion. The storm veering off was a fact. There's a major difference between the two. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Everyone is not entitled to their own facts.

      (to paraphrase someone).

      I was drawn to the flame because of the light, but got lost in the smoke.

        After reading it again I see your point.

        A better answer would have been what I consider sunny up in NH is different than what they consider sunny in FL.

        With government intelligence (insert pun here) what we know as facts are probably 1/10 of the truth if that. What we will learn 10 20 30 years from now as documents become declassified will give us the facts. I will reserve judgement on these issues until more is known.

        As far as what constitutes torture I don't know. How do you extract vital information from known or strongly suspected terrorists. WIth lives on the line I don't know if I could answer that question.

        My issue with the late night MSNBC news is they don't always present ALL the facts, just the ones that support their opinion.
