Something to Know - 11 August

1.  David Gresham has a new book - "Project Innocence".   His contribution this morning to the NY Times puts a face on a Gitmo detainee that will open your mind up a bit as to what is actually going on at the expensive prison on the small end of Cuba.  Mostly, it puts a face on the way in which injustice gets mixed up with political twists, greedy snitches, and a government that is unable to face up to its Constitutional obligations:

2.  Maureen Dowd is now involved in puffing up some interest in the Hillary-for-President discussion.  I think you will enjoy this piece, especially how it smooths out all of the angst and misgivings of past relationships, while creating a new one:
