I vote against the death penalty for three reasons (1) it is not a deterrent, (2) it costs more to carry it out, given the built-in appeals process, than life w/o parole; (3) there has been historically some instances of false convictions, and once carried out, it is difficult to reverse the penalty.  None of these are for any “Sanctity of life” reasons as much as practicality.

Truth, especially “moral truth,” is that elusive human creation whose exclusive apprehension is claimed by many, who then sanctimoniously condemn anyone else who does not agree with their particular apprehension, while denying that any question can be posed about their own apprehension.  I will try to avoid that tendency.  DEC

You kill one innocent man and you kick God in the teeth.

Now that’s the first good argument for killing
‘one innocent man’ that I’ve ever heard.

SIGGED!

Nay. For the reasons already posted.

...it has to put into the equation: the possibility that there is no God and nothing works for the best. I don’t necessarily subscribe to that view, but I don’t know what I do subscribe to. Why do I have to have a world view? I mean, when I wrote Cujo, I wasn’t even old enough to be president. Maybe when I’m frty or forty-five, but I don’t now. I’m just trying on all these hats.
