Amnesty International: Hamdan v. Rumsfeld Action Letter Campaign

From the Amnesty International Online Action Center...their latest campaign against torture.

On June 29, the Supreme Court ruled that Common Article 3 of the Geneva
Conventions protected detainees in US custody. This ruling reinstates
fundamental human rights protections that the President sought to set aside by
Executive Order. The coming months will be critical in determining how the Bush
Administration implements the Court’s decision. Urge the government not to gut
these important safeguards through omissions or legislation.

Click here to let President Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld know that you're concerned about their proposed legislation to restrict Article 3 of the Geneva Convention.

wicked! Done and done.

I'm through the worst of it now, I think. It's 5:08 AM for me here, so soon it will be daylight, and I find it impossible to sleep during the day.

I'm losing steam fast. But I must carry on :)

I also have to squeeze in a post for Taylor Marsh's blog for tomorrow. Need some Mountain Dew!

What is this Mountain Dew you keep going on about? It sound like a magical elixir or something.

All I've got is a bottle of Diet Coke in the fridge.

My fat butt got an A in my health class. Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper have the most caffeine.

I know Jolt Cola has the most, but I didn't include it in the above paragraph because I'd classify that as "liquid crack".

I was advised, as a lest resort, to put a couple of spoonfuls of coffee powder on a hot spoon, wait till it goes gooey, and quickly down it followed by a glass of water.

Needless to say, I haven't got that desperate yet...

zazou, thanks.

Heathlander, this is Mountain Dew. Once you do the Dew, you never go back to regular caffiene.

Its the preferred drug of teenagers (and late night bloggers) everywhere!

Wow, benzine, tartrazine, caffeine and brominated vegatable oil (banned in 100 countries) all in one drink!

Impressive. ;)
