Kudos to the Seattle Times

I became a C-Span junkie in my 3rd year of law/grad school (God knows you have enough time to watch a lot of TV in 3L), and have been as faithful addict ever since. This past week, they recently covered a panel discussion featuring none other than James Yee - the Chinese-American Muslim convert US Army Chaplain who was the subject of a pretty intense investigation for alleged mishandling of materials at Gitmo. It was actually Yee’s first public appearance ever since the entire debacle, and the journalists in attendance were hot and heavy for some questions of his experience.

The entire show, which I highly recommend watching/listening, is available at CSpan and so is a related, and belated, story by Ray Rivera - now a Washington Post journalist - about Yee’s ordeal at the Seattle Times’ excellent special investigations website.

Back in the good old days when I earned my living sitting in my basement writing database and php code all day long I had C-SPAN on in the background the entire time.  I’d catch some good stuff if I was paying attention.
