Let's see hown many people totally ignore this article.:et's also see how many papers even print it. Most will not because of the anti-death penalty bent of the media. It will be easy enough to check by seeing hown many "hit" it get when you Google it in a couple of days.

So what is your post supposed to be for other than to demonstrate that you can not have an original thought. Why did you not post someting to the news article itself by starting a thread? Thanks for proving once again that all you can do is follow me around, change names, and make stupid remarks.

That group has not really done much in the last 3-4 years. At one time they were VERY useful to both sides of the issue trying to get accurate information out to the public..

I see you are still lurking with the icons!

Obviously the article was to complex for her tiny mind to comprehend and there were no spelling errors, so posting to the thread was not an option. Her time is now spent clicking the icon buttons. Based on her intelligence level I suspect this is a most challenging endeavor.

I just hope that this thinking process that she is new to does not cause her brain to implode! Messy, messy, messy!

Interesting situation. I am using my laptop right now and I am in Tavares outside the courthouse. The IP address says I am connected at Leesburg. Last time I did this is said Tavares.

One thing the article doesn't mention - in addition to saving 60 lives, they also got rid of 24 scumbags. It's a win-win situation for decent people in Texas.

Yep, we sent one packing to hell just a few hours ago! A no good scum sucking cop killer that is now getting his anal delights probed by the devil and his red hot poker!

Well onr thing is for sure. The ones that we executed won't kill anyone else.

Good study like the fact that it takes into account that Texas is the best at gtting rid of these cancers.
