Andy Borowitz with a satirical, and oddly persuasive, take on the problem of where to put the detainees currently held at Guantanamo Bay in the event that the prison is closed: move them to the CBS reality show “Big Brother”. An excerpt:

“We wanted to be sure that these terror suspects were someplace where they could be constantly monitored,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “And we could think of no better place than the Big Brother house, which has a camera in every room.”
