This morning when I was going through my "show prep" I thought, "The time has come. I need reading glasses." I was looking over a CBS report about convicted murderer Ronnie Lee Gardner who is scheduled to be put to death on Friday in Utah for killing two people.
If his appeal is denied, he will executed by FIRING SQUAD. You heard me: FIRING SQUAD. He will be strapped to a chair, a hood pulled over his head, and a target placed over his heart, and he will be shot to death. His choice, by the way. He could have gone for lethal injection.
This is just gross and demented- even for Utah- from which some of our nation's most disturbing stories come.
My eyesight is fine. My faith in humanity not so much.
