Yes, but can the Federal Appeals Court in St. Louis make itself sane?
In perhaps the looniest paragraph I’ve read this year, Greg Popcak links an article which sez: “The federal appeals court in St. Louis ruled yesterday that officials in Arkansas can force a prisoner on death row to take antipsychotic medication to make him sane enough to execute. Without the drugs, the prisoner, Charles Laverne Singleton, could not be put to death under a United States Supreme Court decision that prohibits the execution of the insane.”
Okay, all you Culture of Death Penalty enthusiasts: justify *this* one.
Oh, and on a completely unrelated note: check out Greg’s contribution to the Rumsfeld as Artist idea.
