texas insane

Update: That condemned man in Texas gets a 6-month reprieve
A federal judge stayed the execution mentioned here yesterday, ruling that there is an obvious issue of whether Jeffrey Wood is insane. The U.S. Supreme Court has barred the execution of insane people, but Texas law requires that such an insane person prove that he is insane in order to get a hearing on whether he is insane. Federal judge Orlando Garcia says that is "insane." New York Times

Talk about bureaucracy. It's like filling out a form in duplicate, I guess, just to make sure he really is insane.

Most humans don't kill other humans
Most humans are normal or sane
Humans that kill other humans are not normal or insane

So... either all murders get an automatic pass or the insanity defense doesn't work.

Ah... cut the crap! Nuke'em all
