Questioning "24"

Just a few things to ponder after last night's episode (SPOILER WARNING):

- If Logan wants to really get Jack, why doesn't he just tell the Chinese that he's still alive? It's getting a little absurd that it's supposed to be a secret that Jack's alive, yet they just told every law enforcement organ in Southern California to be on the lookout for him.

- Why are they setting up Logan as though he wasn't part of the plot to kill David Palmer? I'd have thought he had a perfect motive to kill Palmer- he knew that Logan wasn't up to taking over the presidency during last season, and called Palmer in to, essentially, act as president. Since Palmer was in position to blow the whistle on that, you could see he'd want Palmer gone.

- Was the Charles/Martha Logan kiss more, or less, creepy than the Al/Tipper Gore kiss at the 2000 Democratic convention? I guess it loses creepy points for not being in public, but gains them for the president being a traitor.

- Why didn't the bank manager recognize Wayne Palmer, the former president's brother, right away? I know that if Jeb Bush broke into my house, I'd know who he was instantly.

- There's martial law in Southern California, yet the Secretary of Defense can land his plane at the airport at will?

- Wasn't Sexual Harassment Girl brought into CTU prior to the DHS takeover? If so, why wasn't she fired along with the rest of the staff, especially since Creepy Sexual Harassment Man likely would've wanted her gone?

Whoa! You are spending WAY too much time thinking about 24.

1. The Chinese will find out on their own, no need to make direct contact.

2. Wouldn't he have to kill Mike Novick too, then?

3. I didn't think it was all that creepy. For all his faults, I think Logan does love her.

4. Jeb is known in his own right. Would you know Marvin or Neil Bush if you ran into him?

5 and 6. Good questions, I got nothing.
