Astonishing Use of the English Language of the Week

In a letter to today's New York Times on the nomination of Michael Mukasey to be Attorney General, a Mr. Bob Kelly of Keansburg, New Jersey wrote the following phrase in what he meant to be a temperate letter. We give it a paragraph of its own, because it deserves it.

"Those who tortured in good faith"

Parse that one for awhile, gang. Now tell me the United States of America isn't a doomed institution-without either laughing or crying.
