The Nation's Matt Bivens says the photos [of the torture of Iraqi prisoners] should be seen in context: "While some agents of our government were making grown Iraqi men perform mock fellatio on each other, others were dropping 500-pound bombs on a small one-story town and in the process killing, among others, hundreds of women and children."
[Ed. note: I think that this little paragraph should speak for itself. I will try to post a little paragraph like this everyday, along with your regular submissions. I know this is supposed to be a site that carries mainly fictional, humorous stories. I know we live in reality and we turn to humor to lighten up, but shit, things are fucked up. But I think sometimes we need a little non-fiction to put our fiction in perspective. Thanks. Please continue to submit. -D]
Hoping to not put a pall over the humorous tradition and beacon that is Uber...
