   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We actually heard today’s edition of the Joke of the Day in church, but not from the pastor!


"You will never truly know yourself or the strength of your relationships until both have been tested by adversity."

~J. K. Rowling, Harvard Commencement Address, 2008


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
A Senate report has been issued detailing interrogation techniques used by the CIA that many consider torture. Some say the United States should never resort to torture, and that information gathered that way is unreliable because prisoners will say anything to stop the abuse. Others say torture can and did gather valuable intelligence.   Should the United States use torture as a matter of policy?



Current Wyoming law says someone who possesses a small amount of marijuana can be sentenced to up to a year in jail, and/or a fine of $1000. A Wyoming legislator plans to introduce a bill during the upcoming legislative session to lower those penalties. His proposal is to make possession of up to a half an ounce of pot subject to a fine of $50, and possession of an ounce subject to a fine of $100.  Should the penalties for marijuana possession in Wyoming be reduced?
