    They should put Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin posters up on the wall of the gas chambers to indicate the United States criminal justice system's obsession with death.

    I enjoy these guys' posters.

    Playing Swedish death metal at executions might be a good way get the condemned to give the injection to himself.

    I see that Radley is broadcasting from his underground lair again.

    "It's all 'Merry Christmas' until the bombs start to fall, fool!"

    I kept waiting for the COPS crew to come storming in through the window.

    Exactly. I mean, there's no way Radley's wearing pants in that video, right?

    Stop projecting your pantless activism. You know that petition form the other librarians is going to get enough signatures one day, right?

    "Don't you hate pants?"

    This is probably an interesting story, but I could only stand the first 30 seconds of Rachel Maddow lite before I threw up.

    Yeah, the hand gestures were bad enough, but the capper was when she pronounced appellate "app-ell-LATE."

    But is it the "Alynoa" or "Alyona"? It's spelled both ways in the post.

    Jesus Fucking Christ Balko.
    Is there any way you possibly make yourself look more like an on-line pedophile stalking his prey?

    And the answer is: No, no possible way.

    Radley, believe me when I say that I mean this in the best possible way. You are an excellent writer. You are not well suited to being a talking head.
