Proud to be an American?

Congrats, North Carolina. You've pushed one of our many national shames into quadruple digits. With the state-sponsored murder of Kenneth Lee Boyd, America has now taken revenge on 1,000 criminals. Unfortunately, none of the victims, including the two killed by Boyd, have come back to life.

Boyd died at 2:15 AM. Anybody wonder why executions are done in the middle of the night. Could it be shame?

My best friend from high school has suggested that we all should have to take turns pushing the button or pulling the switch, since this crime is, after all, on our collective national head.

I could quote Catholic teaching, but I think I'll pull a Gump and quote my mother: Two wrongs don't make a right.
