Opus hodiernus: mortem

Feeble my ass. At least it is comforting to know that for every sinner like Clarence Ray Allen, there is always a True Christian like Vernell Crittenden.



SAN QUENTIN, California (AP) -- In the end, California's oldest condemned inmate did not seem quite as feeble as his attorneys made him out to be in their efforts to save his life.

With the help of four big prison guards, Clarence Ray Allen shuffled from his wheelchair to a gurney inside San Quentin's death chamber early Tuesday, a day after his 76th birthday.

Though legally blind, Allen raised his head to search among execution witnesses for relatives he had invited.

"Hoka hey, it's a good day to die," Allen said in a nod to his Choctaw Indian heritage. "Thank you very much, I love you all. Goodbye."

Having suffered a heart attack back in September, Allen had asked prison authorities to let him die if he went into cardiac arrest before his execution, a request prison officials said they would not honor.

"At no point are we not going to value the sanctity of life," said prison spokesman Vernell Crittendon. "We would resuscitate him," then execute him.

But the barrel-chested prisoner's heart was strong to the end: Doctors had to administer a second shot of potassium chloride to stop it.

One of the rules of Comedy is that for something to be funny, it has to be true. Having said that - this is one boring blog. Why? Because it seems to mostly be masturbatory after the politics as religion sort ... which is just as bad as religion as politics. At most - it contributes to the further aggressive breakdown in rhetoric. And who loses in the end? The masses - who could do well without liars: Right or Left.

(Like I've said - I've got a few script treatments: one is a montage of Bleeding Ponytails trying to relive their Revolutionary Glory Days by pushing Neo-Congames or Retro-60's Leftist battles. Damn, I'm glad its the 21st c. - we don't have to be 'Modern' anymore: and neither do you.)

Now that's what I call irony...
