    True. I would have said ignorant and not stupid, but true.

    Your statement will be rendered ridiculously stupid in due course of time. I guarantee it.

    No problem ocean. Actually I thought about you for a while yesterday when I was at work. I am pulling for you. I really wish you well in your spiritual endeavors. I'm very serious when I say that.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Like I said to someone else, a person who has been subjected to waterboarding my feel some relief when such conditions are removed. However, that relief cannot be said to be substantial happiness. It is merely relief from a particular type of suffering. The person will be subjected to unpleasant conditions in other ways.
