Are Orcas Too Smart for Captivity?

There is a bunch of talk recently about keeping orcas (killer whales) in captivity at popular places like Sea World. 

We know that orcas are pretty darn smart and that they can learn "tricks" and "stunts" that entertain us.  But are they miserable when captive for live?

Here's an interesting explanation of recent research that seems to say that orcas would prefer life at sea.

What do you think?
