I'm a big fan of the show 24, but I watch it more for its comedic value than for its drama. I know they're not trying to be funny, but I get more laughs out of an hour of 24 than a whole season of My Name is Earl.
I don't mean to offend anyone connected with My Name is Earl -- it's a fine show that I watch often -- I just think 24 is funnier.
A military interrogator writing under the name Matthew Alexander has published a book, How to Break a Terrorist, that dares to suggest certain "enhanced techniques" are counter-productive. To be honest, I haven't read the book yet, and I probably won't since I'm not likely to ever get to interrogate a terrorist (I wish!), but I have seen the guy on many talk shows and he sounds like he knows what he's talking about.
