Fans of TV’s “24” know by now that the terrorists have detonated a nuke, wiping out a square mile of Valencia, California. If I was at work at the time, that means I’m toast. (Our broadcast facilities are in Valencia.)

I feel okay. A little radioactive, perhaps. My cat’s hair is falling out.

Oh — and has Jack Baur ever met anyone he wouldn’t torture? Apparently, he’s putting the screws (and plastic bags) to his brother. One wonders just who else he’d consider torturing.

“Hey, that fast food worker messed up my order! Get me a screwdriver and some electrical cord!”

God help us if Jack Baur ever teamed up with MacGyver.
