Editors, the Gauntlet:

My boyfriend has played for the Dinosaurs for three years, which is why I read the Gauntlet sports section. At √ěrst I was disappointed with the coverage this year because it seemed so irreverent. I grew to like it, though, because I found the topics interesting and enjoyed the writers' commentary. The Cheap Seats really made the reader feel part of the event, but I still don't like the name.

  Killing convicts doesn't make sensePDF files may take a moment to load

There has been a good deal of publicity lately regarding several convicted killers slated to die in the United States. Two of the most prominent are Canadian national Stanley Faulder and German national Darell Mease. I really can't figure out why they're killing these guys.

The response that you hear most often is "as a punishment for their crimes." Fair enough. But why death? I think it has to do with our motivations for punishment. I also think those motivations are seriously flawed.

The pulsing music invigorates your body and soul. Your attire has been strategically selected, lipstick religiously re-applied, and hair perfectly set. Hundreds of pairs of eyes dart around the dimly-lit space. They scope, scan, stare, compare, and search intently for a match. You can cast any image you want here. You can be anyone you want, because tonight you are chillin' at one of the many establishments that pathetically promise booze, fun and sexuality.

You are at the bar.

The Nanny's Fran Drescher eats a bad piece of cake and then says in her trademark whiny voice, "I'm nauseous" (phonetically: nyaww-shuss). She follows this up with some abrasive cackling. I say to myself, "You sure are!" then change the channel.
