This week’s OtherWords editorial package features a Jim Hightower column about a company that’s trying to override Vermont’s decision to shutter a nuclear reactor and an op-ed by Peter Weiss on why torture doesn’t “work.”

If you haven’t already, please also check out the commentaries we ran last week on our blog following the big news on bin Laden. We ran this week’s cartoon five days early and pre-released Donald Kaul’s column as a blog post.
