"Great job with your chores, Katie! Here's that cupcake that I promised you'd get for being so good." It seems innocent enough. After all, Katie has completed her homework, done her chores, got her pajamas on, and is behaving exactly as her mom told her to. Why not reward the...

Barack Obama was, in 2008, the anti-torture candidate. It's a sad comment on the state of U.S. democracy that such a thing ever existed. After all, it would be startling to hear appeals from a pro-oxygen or an anti-apocalypse candidate. Still, it was refreshing. So what happened?
