Letters to the Editor

'Too cruel?'

I enjoyed greatly the letters in the Dec. 14 issue. None of the writers seem concerned about the comfort of convicted murderers and worse types on death row. The only people worried about whether inmates in the execution process are feeling any pain are the anti-death penalty advocates who will only be happy when the death penalty is abolished.

Since execution by lethal injection became such a hot issue with the anti-capital punishment crowd, my feelings about the socio/psychopaths on death row have hardened all the more.

As a great solution for clearing out death row in California, does anyone remember the 1973 movie "Soylent Green" starring Charlton Heston? Is that too cruel?
