If you're a fan of
24 (Mondays at 9 pm on FOX), you don't have to be told what needs to be
done to save America from a terrorist attack. So in this season's hour 4, when

undercover contact in the Russian mob, she did what any red-blooded American
would do: she put the guy's hand in a vise and cut his thumb off.
