mr bush sez we gut to git after them evildoers, witch tiz odd that thays folks that isnt a mix of good n evil, but whut gits me to the point whar i caint figger whut wurds is spozed to mean is how mr inahuff of oklahoma sez hes disgusted by them humanitarian do-gooders. so we dont lack evildoers n dont lack do-gooders neethur one. who are we spozed to lack?

we used to wurry bout how sumbidy could try to trick folks with how they dint know whut the meanin of is wuz, but now we gut better wurds to puzzle us, lack whut the meanin of tortchur is or whut these wurds frum the geneva cunvenchun is spozed to mean:

Article 13

Prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission by the Detaining Power causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of the present Convention. In particular, no prisoner of war may be subjected to physical mutilation or to medical or scientific experiments of any kind which are not justified by the medical, dental or hospital treatment of the prisoner concerned and carried out in his interest.

Likewise, prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity.

Measures of reprisal against prisoners of war are prohibited.

Article 14

Prisoners of war are entitled in all circumstances to respect for their persons and their honour. Women shall be treated with all the regard due to their sex and shall in all cases benefit by treatment as favourable as that granted to men. Prisoners of war shall retain the full civil capacity which they enjoyed at the time of their capture. The Detaining Power may not restrict the exercise, either within or without its own territory, of the rights such capacity confers except in so far as the captivity requires.

Article 15

The Power detaining prisoners of war shall be bound to provide free of charge for their maintenance and for the medical attention required by their state of health.

frum the awful to the mudane, thars this anser frum them blogger support folks, who wont us blogger-fools to know they are doin this all fer our own good:

Hi there,

The optional split-screen blogging interface preferred by some users has been replaced. Instead, one improved and streamlined interface is available to all Blogger users. Our decision to make this change was a response to user feedback and testing.

The new editing environment is a better workflow for the majority of our users. Additionally, supporting one default interface as well as one optional interface to Blogger was a strain on resources not to mention potentially confusing.

That being said, we have noted so far the major features of the old split screen blogging environment that people miss most. Fans of the two-pane layout were fond of the context it lent to the workflow; you could read your old posts while composing a new one. They also liked the calendar interface for browsing older posts.

Please keep in mind that this is the first iteration of the new interface. We continue to gather feedback and monitor response to this upgrade. Innovation and the implementation of new features is ongoing. Helping you create and browse your posts is a high priority and we will continue to enhance the Blogger editing environment for a good experience.
