"Screw liberty, give me death!" -- John Ashcroft. The death penalty, that is. Our hateful AG won't let people who want to die do so in Oregon, he won't let the terminally ill ease their pain with marijuana, but he insists on the death penalty even in cases where prosecutors recommend against it. In the most recent case, a drug dealer accused of murder has offered to testify against others in exchange for a life sentence instead of death. Ashcroft nixed the deal, apparently intending to spread the joy of the death penalty far and wide. People like Ashcroft should be provided psychiatric care and not allowed to operate heavy machinery; they certainly shouldn't be in the frigging cabinet!
