    Good suggestions about alternative drugs to use, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the manufacturers of those drugs objected to them being used to kill people.

    Thanks for the link to the article. I agree we’re not getting anything close to the truth about what’s going on in Chechnya, Ukraine and Russia.

    But I don’t think the FBI concocted an elaborate scheme to ensnare Dzhokhar and Tamerlan. Frankly, I am not very impressed with their professionalism or ability to concoct such a scheme.

    That’s not to say that they didn’t, but I’m going to have to see a lot of evidence to support that theory before I will believe it.

    The focus during voir dire on the death penalty is typical of any death case and it unfortunately comes across as a concession that the defendant will be convicted. This is just another reason to oppose the death penalty.

    Mahatma Gandhi said, if we were to apply the eye-for-an-eye rule (lex talionis), everybody would be blind.

    Thanks, babe, for fleshing out the situation.

    I’m kind of in a state of stunned disbelief seeing so much opposition to the death penalty. I’m used to seeing only about a half dozen people per hundred express opposition or serious reservations about the death penalty.

    I honestly never dared to believe that I would live to see this day.

    Massachusetts generally and Boston specifically have expressed less support for the death penalty than the rest of the country. But I never imagined that opposition had evolved into what we are seeing in the Tsarnaev case. And this is an egregious case involving the deaths of multiple innocent victims, including a child and a cop.

    I’m literally on my knees thanking God and these courageous and scrupled people for refusing to be manipulated by national efforts to keep fear alive.

    The Rising Sign is the constellation on the eastern horizon at the moment of birth. As the Earth rotates on its axis, the 12 signs of the Zodiac each appear to rise in the east, approximately at the rate of one per every 2 hours. Length of time varies according to birthplace longitude.

    Rising Sign symbolizes the self as it presents itself to the outside world (i.e., the personality).

    The position of the Moon in the natal chart symbolizes the person’s need for emotional security.

    The Sun sign, Rising Sign and Moon Sign indicate a lot about a person.

    Drought brought down the Mayan empire. Don’t know about the Clovis people, but there was a Frankish dude named Clovis I, who united the Frankish tribes in the 5th century.

    Good morning everyone. I delivered Crane to her job and now I’m home.

    Trying to recall the last time I drank milk. Has to be more than 50 years ago. I never liked it.

    Not particularly fond of eggs either, but I’ll tolerate them, if served.

    Three more jurors “changed” their opinion about being able to impose the death penalty during their interview. They were possibly so undecided as to what they should do that they finally agreed, they could do it. Would the court really seat jurors that might vote for the death penalty, depending on which day it is? These [...]

    Pete Carroll, coach of the Seattle Seahawks, teaches rugby tackling, a method that keeps the head out of contact with the opponent when tackling. He made an instructional video that has been distributed at all levels of the game.

    Being a sports fan isn’t reasonable, but I am. Prefer baseball to football, however. I’ve been an athlete all my life and prefer competing to watching.

    But, hey, I’m getting old and my bones creak.

    Lived in Seattle most of my life, which is why I follow Seattle sports teams.

    Just showing up has never been acceptable to me. Always attempt to be the best I can be.
