“DON’T MAKE THEM LISTEN TO OUR STUFF — IT’S INHUMAN!” Rockers to Press Obama on Music Torture. Best bit: “And the BBC has reported on a particularly insidious practice: using the theme songs from Sesame Street and Barney to break the will of prisoners.” Okay, that is inhuman. At any rate, whatever limits on volume and duration are applied to Guantanamo should also be applied to public concerts . . . .

UPDATE: At least they’re not waterboarding puppies. That Greenwald will stop at nothing. You’d never catch me wasting perfectly good smoothie material abusing puppies like that . . . .

ANOTHER UPDATE: It could be worse!

MORE: Advice from Rand Simberg: “If you don’t want people to use your music to torment terrorists, then quit making such awful music.”
