    I was asked my opinion about sex ed in the lower grades in school and the reporter was shocked when I said I was totally in favor.
    "Really? I didn't expect that."
    "Of course. If the schools taught sex the way they teach reading, by the time kids reached puberty they wouldn't want to do it."

    Take something basically simple, everyone can do it, and the government can screw it up.

    Some of the victims of those on death row, died violent, painful deaths. I see no reason to make sure their deaths are humane.

    Let the victim's families have at 'em, wouldn't cost the state a dime.

    *update*

    The state of Arkansas faces a new hurdle that could foil its plans to execute eight inmates over 10 days next month: a lack of volunteers from the public to watch.


    Arkansas state code says that at least six "respectable citizens" must view the executions to confirm it was "conducted in the manner required by law." But the state's Department of Correction is struggling to come up with enough people, according to local reports.


    Indicating the state's desperation, Wendy Kelly, the director of the Department of Correction, held a presentation this week to the Little Rock Rotary Club to solicit volunteers, NBC affiliate KARK reported.


    "Temporarily, there was a little laugh from the audience because they thought she might be kidding," interim Rotary Club President Bill Booker told the station.


    "It quickly became obvious that she was not kidding."




    It has been nearly 12 years since Arkansas has used the death penalty.

    That would violate the Constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.

    I have always made the same statement about the Death Penalty.
    It should be used rarely and reserved for the few humans that have proven themselves to be unsalvageable.

    I agree waiting to die and knowing you are going to is suffering in itself
