Today's Papers gives me good news and bad news. …

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Today's Papers gives me good news and bad news. Bad news: the India/Pakistan situation seems to steadily move towards war. Dammit! Good news: a leaked draft implies that the military tribunals won't be as horrendous vis-à-vis civil liberties as originally believed.
