Your view: I do agree

Friday, June 15, 2007

Dear Editor,

From my previous letters, you know there are lots of issues on which we disagree.

Not so on your editorial of June 6, 2007, "Death penalty case is cruel and unusual."

You made some rather extreme statements, e.g., 1. "A dim-witted District judge . . . ."

2. "And in an amazing decision U.S. District Judge Fernando Gaitan, Jr. ruled for Taylor.

3. "If these coddled killers don't like lethal injection, how how about a firing squad?"

4. "And then some asinine judge says the process of lethal injection may cause some pain?"

If I had your writing skills, I would have written this editorial and sent it to you as my letter to the editor.

Respectfully yours,

Bill D. Burlison
