That's a terrible question. But the answer is one. I don't plan on looking at these drafts. We're going to be reading them and stuff. And talking about stuff and things.

How is that a terrible question? You and I are both lucky the Twins just won and I'm in a good mood. Otherwise, I may have had to gather the motivation and stuff to come up with some sort of comeback thing.

I found a good site called the Physicians for Human Rights at www.phrusa.org It has a lot about the protection of human rights and instances where torture occurred. i.e. Abu Gharib, Guantanamo

I have a definition of torture but i am having trouble applying it to me. I am wondering what direction some people are taking this to give me a better idea how to attack this paper.

I'm focusing on how the torture of one can lead to the torture of others through suicide. If one is tortured and decides to commit suicide, it undoubtedly will affect the family and friends of that person. Some of those people could be tortured by this and perhaps even commit suicide themselves, causing the torture of even more people. I guess I'm focusing on its trickle-down and cyclic effects.

Dear Anonymous, you might have supplied us with your definition so we could help you with a direction... It's like asking for directions to a town you forgot the name of, what you did right there.
