"As you sow, so shall you reap..."

The above quote comes, of course, from the New Testament. I interpret it to mean that if you start something using evil methods (no matter what the intentions are) it will end in evil. A few days ago the Senate voted 60-36 to confirm Alberto Gonzales as the Attorny General of the United States. Despte the torture memos, despite Abu Gharib, despite Guantanamo. While eliminating terrorism is a laudable, and necessary goal, as long as we use torture and inhumane treatment we will never win. Sooner or later someone is going to reap the results of what Alberto Gonzales and the Senate sowed. Unfortunately, it will probably be innocent people who had nothing to do with the above illegal policies.
