Mystery of murder

Murder: the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.

Execution: the carrying out of a sentence of death on a condemned person or the killing of someone as a political act.

Did you notice that one word that makes these two acts different?

In case you missed it, there was a public official from Texas on the TV News the other night, reminding us that it’s okay to use a lethal injection to execute a man on death row – because it is legal.

The only murders we should be reading about are the ones in crime novels. Sadly, not everybody agrees with me.

Thanks for dropping by, Peter.
