Very cool!

The most exciting place I'll ever get sent to for my work is our farm in Hanover Park.

So have fun for me too.
:D

Where did that come from? I am genuinely interested in reading up on that.

That sounds really neat. If I am lucky my job lets me go to Quincy. I am envious. What does J have to say?
That's about as far as i've gotten... oh, wait, no... i went to Peoria and Normal. As nice as they are, wehn driving down with a complete neurotic head case, having some free time, dinner, then a client meeting the next morning and the drive back, when they decided taht tehre was no longer budget for me to tag along (not more than $150 in expenses for me), i wasn't taht sad to be left behind.

had i "known" mathilda at the time, my opinion of these road trips might have changed.

Yeah, on the weekends there will be chances for excursions. He's not super excited, I don't think. But my SIL will be around then, off and on (camp job again), so he'll only have to deal with one of us, heh.

Completely incomplete answer. It depends on the length of their incarceration.
I don't think so. The longer you keep someone in prison, the cost goes up, sure, but it still doesn't even compare to the cost of executing them.

I've never heard of such a thing.

Same here. I have no interest in going to crowded, smelly India especially in the summer.

I mostly want this case done for the families so that they aren't subjected to teh details at appeal after appeal.
Oh, sorry I didn't cite the source or give you more info! I was sorta in a rush to get outta work.

Those figures are based on the state of California only.

VERY cool! Who else is going from your job? Does your husband get to join you for a mini trip?

Sounds like he was with his uncle in the truck when they both died? Drug OD?

I know you don't like to let things like information and facts get in the way of what you say, but look at post #83323 for some basic math.

So this show I watch with my bf had an episode a couple of weeks ago with a bad guy who went by YOLO, and he ended up getting killed by the guy he was torturing (played quite well by Patton Oswalt). Now if only someone could actually kill that acronym.

"Like a magician quieting a group of children by pulling a rabbit out of a hat, my sister reached into her purse and produced two shiny Apple iPads," handing one to each child. The kids fell "eerily" silent for the rest of the meal.
This is hardly a unique occurrence. In restaurants, churches, and other public places all over the U.S.(and probably the developed world), harried parents pull out their tablets or smartphones for a spell of peace and quiet for them and any other adults around them. And, like Bilton's sister, many of these parents feel "slightly guilty."

Guilty??!?! HAH! I feel overjoyed! The only negative feeling I have is envy, cause in order to quiet them down *I* can't play with my phone while I wait for my food. Need to remember to bring the old phones with us next time we go out to eat.

I suspect that part of the cost of execution includes a more expensive housing expense for death row inmates.

I told him he could, but I don't think he's going to. There's a bunch of people going, but like 6 from my area, nobody I know really well. One guy is from Chennai. Hope he knows he's going to be our defacto tour guide/translator, ha ha.

I don't think so. I think the extra cost is factoring in all the costs to the government associated with the multiple appeals process.
