The state of Texas murdered a woman by lethal injection. Rubbed her arm with alcohol first and then rubbed her out. Of course Texas likes killing people. Kill kill kill kill kill. 144 since 1982. That's not just a gross of dead men, its gross. They're killing crazy down there.But they don't like offing dames. No no no no no. It's been 135 years since they did it. Of course back then they used a rope around the neck instead of a dose of sodium thiopental, and in case you're wondering, neither is very good for you.Although out of the four choices, I would say a string of sodium thiopental around my neck would be much preferable to an injection of rope. Like Chipita Rodriguez who was hanged or is it hung from a mesquite tree back in 1865, Karla Faye Tucker was a convicted ax murderer. Ain't life odd? I guess womens just love those sharp edges.The big difference being Ms. Tucker's execution was protested by factions of the far right since her recent conversion to Christianity. I guess the reason murderers find God in prison is that listening to the Voice of the Lord makes it a whole lot easier to drown out the echoing whispers of their victims.
