Man Jailed, Tortured By US For Reading Article

How Mom sent a guy to Gitmo

She thought her article was satire, but U.S. officials didn't get the joke.
LA Times
My mother is a terrorist!

Or at least that's what certain unidentified U.S. interrogators seem to suspect.

It all stems from a satirical article called "How to Build Your Own Home H-Bomb" that my mother, Barbara Ehrenreich, wrote with two coauthors 30 years ago. The article, published in Seven Days magazine, was chock-full of helpful tips for would-be nuclear bomb makers.

For instance, it advised those struggling to enrich uranium to make "a simple home centrifuge. Fill a standard-size bucket one-quarter full of liquid uranium hexafluoride. Attach a six-foot rope to the bucket handle. Now swing the [bucket] around your head as fast as possible. Keep this up for about 45 minutes."

It's clear that there are township supervisors that are interested in the Health, Safety and Welfare of its residents. Potter County seems to be short on these type of people.
