Listening with one ear and very little attention to detail, I caught the latest radio headlines as I drove home from work.
Somewhere between the Miller Brewery in Irwindale and a gridlock just the other side of Pasadena, I listened to an interview with a torture authority.
He didn't want his identity disclosed so he spoke behind a screen -- for the radio interview.
However, the interviewer used the torture authority's name.
Perhaps speaking the name of a person whose face is hidden behind a screen is just one way of protecting the person's identity.
I missed the point of the interview because I got so wrapped up in fathoming the logic of this approach to privacy.
Also, of course, I was driving.
