According to columnist Bill Newman, “Someday we will abolish state-sanctioned killing of our fellow human beings. Someday.” [“The illusion of kinder, gentler executions,” Recorder, Feb. 5.]

I hope he’s wrong. The death penalty makes liberals very sad. Truth be told, I’m happy when a convicted murderer is executed because the killer will never harm anyone ever again. That’s a good thing.
