The world's smallest fiddle

The Telegraph writes of an impending milestone: the one thousandth execution since the death penalty was re-instated.
Barring a miraculous last minute pardon, Robin Lovitt, 41, will be executed tomorrow for the crime of fatally stabbing a man with scissors in a Virginia pool hall robbery in 1998.

Sad. Of course, between the posting of this blog and the beginning of my lunch break, that many pre-born chuldren will be executed "choiced" in this country alone.

And none of them fatally stabbed a man with scissors.

Update: Well, this post is now moot as Governor Warner granted clemency.
