I actually found myself agreeing with Scrat on something -- right up until the last paragraph. The the excesses took over and the agreement went out the window.

Way, way over the top.

It is entirely possible to decide that a particular person IS too great a risk to live among us -- and have that decision reflect on the person -- not our society.

The only thing I've ever seen that might have persuaded me to think maybe there is something to this death penalty thing after all was reading that convicts, even those serving life sentences, jump to the head of the line on organ donor lists when they have an organ failing.

Why?

Because they are in state or federal custody and the state or federal government is responsible for providing them with the best health care.

So while you watch your friend or relative die while waiting for a lung or a liver a convicted murderer might get the organ instead.

Hows that for a death penalty?

Then how come they are given antiquated (by American standards) dental care?

(Not a lament on behalf of the cons, you understand; just showing off my sexy, sexy awareness of dentistry...)

Undoubtedly, dental afficionados are quite sexy.

I didn't know they got bad dental care. Still it is probably better than the dental care of millions of uninsured Americans.

Yeah, much better. And they get a lot of it, 'cause the dentists in there like to have stuff to do. So lots of gold teeth it is. (Doesn't really help the rest of the profession, who are working to get rid of metal in our mouths, but that's probably exaggerated by stuck-up dentists who equate prison dentists with Quasimodo...)

Wait a sec, are we talking legal death penalty, or vigilante justice? I am Canadian and very confused. How you Americans keep it all together is beyond me, really.

Could I make it as a middle aged hard rock semi star in Toronto?

And could I keep my karaoke business running up there?

I've been to Canada several times. The natives were very hostile.

I feared for my life.

Cold and hostile.

The weather's been like that lately. Must been rubbing off on my mood. Confused

Sorry, bpBear.
