Subject: RE: BS: USA sliding into depravity (botched execution)
You might say that, Big Al. I wouldn't, and no one who has known me would. I take no pleasure in execution, but I do believe that in certain exceptional cases it is called for, for reasons I wrote about above. I also think that it should be done efficiently and with minimal pain to the executed person, which I believe I also noted above. I do not get the sort of frisson that, say, Chris Matthews once said he gets from seeing and hearing President Obama.

Thank you for adding to my vocabulary. It makes Aug 1 a non-wasted day.
