So apparently legislators from both parties in Congress are blocking funding for shutting down Gitmo until a "plan" is developed for where to put them. Now, can someone explain to me why we can't simply put them in supermax prisons (from which no one has ever escaped)?

Yeah Melatonin pills work. I like this stuff though http://www.drankbeverage.com/ . But honestly just get some good C. indica and you'll be set.
I'm going to say the same thing I say in all of these threads, which is about half flippant and half deadly serious: al co hol. Social interactions have needed lubrication for thousands of years, and fortunately our stone age forebears found the perfect solution. No need to reinvent the wheel. Find a group of people (hiking club, book discussion group, softball team, whatever). Some of them will go to an establishment that serves booze at some point. Go with...

Err... am I missing something, or are bank robberies by women (of any faith or ethnicity) in headscarves not particularly common?
The White House and the Treasury aren't helping, but the current economic situation is twenty years in the making, not two months. Very good summary/historical contextualization[FT.com]. Particularly scary: Quote: : in the US, overall debt reached an all-time peak of just under 350 per cent of GDP - 85 per cent of it private. This was up from just over 160 per cent in 1980.
