This morning, Mark Riley had a piece on a proposal to arm NYC transit workers with tasers. These are deadly weapons that can also be used for torture. See the Amnesty International links below for information on police abuse of these weapons. If trained police officers misuse these weapons, imagine the potential for abuse that would be created by arming bus drivers!

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
