Redefining the Death Penalty

Although the recent decision by the Supremes over what's called Oregon's assisted suicide law has rekindled the "right to die" nonsense, the conceptual malaprops suggest a solution to the death penalty quarrels.

I suggest we rename the act. Let's call it, State Mandated, (or persondated) Assisted Suicide. Eh?

And do away with the heart stopping, potassium chloride and the sedatives. Let's use starvation. After all, we've learned it was both euphoric and painless. Who would want to live like that anyway, cooped up in a 9x12 room for 57 years?
