I always thought that if something went wrong, the guy was set free - you know - divine intervention. Guess I'm wrong. Geez.

Ms. Moon,
I SERIOUSLY love you back!

White Rabbit,
The poor unfortunate. . . .

Jeannie,
Me too. Evidently NOT.

Love to all,

SB

I am disturbed by this account, but almost as much by the idea of anyone starting a site called "Executed Today." If I had to research this shit I'd kill myself.

Executed Today said...

I have to admit that would be a fitting epigraph/-taph to the site, Mark ...

Thanks for the link. Here's a similar one:

You know what I mean.
