    Go off and think? Excuse me? I’m 62, and was married to a prison caseworker for many years. I’ve already thought about this. You are going on record as saying that whatever means of execution we use should be slow and painful? You are depriving this person of life, yet you want pain and suffering also? If a person is to be executed, they have months, years, even decades to face death. What more suffering do you require? Is this personal? Do you have experience from either side of this “debate”? I don’t approve of the death penalty, but we’re obviously going to use it. A prolonged, painful execution is cruel and unusual, and once we sink to that level, we are no better than those we execute. To maintain a level of civility separates us from those we put to death. So seek your own personal brand of torture somewhere else, please.

    Sure, but when you preface it with “slut” I think you remove all superfluous meanings…

    I’m no wimp, but Mr. Whipple always seemed a bit creepy to me….

    Playing with the numbers a bit. I live alone on 10 acres. In fairness, I do large animal rescue and grow my own hay for them. Then there’s the house, the barn, the shed, the driveway, etc. Bottom line, 1 person on 10 acres equals 64 people per square mile. Slightly below the average stated in the strip, but still makes me think.

    Humor aside, excellent commentary. Being caged must be very like a ball and chain, only with less room to move.

    “You say?” I’m glad no one is listening to you. So you think C&U is okay? Makes them go straight, does it? I hope you never have to face it yourself, or know anyone who does.

    She takes money for sex? And you have proof of this how? I don’t exactly like her, but you go a bit far when you make statements like that.

    It’s so nice to feel protected… jeez. You hear worse on TV. Remember “Bus Rider” by The Guess Who? Same thing… sad
