Don't know about you, but I'm getting so tired of these absurd last-minute stays of execution that come from our federal courts. The latest is a delay granted by the Supremes for poor, poor, pitiful Arthur Rutherford in Florida. Arthur is afraid that his lethal injection might hurt. That's right ... it might be painful. He thinks that the infliction of pain is unconstitutional. He stabbed an elderly woman, then drowned her in her bathtub. I guess that didn't hurt at all .. and now this SOB doesn't want to be put to death because he feels it might be painful.

I'm not adamant about the death penalty. For some it is just too easy to go to sleep and have it done with. If we could lock these animals up for the rest of their lives, fine. Basic health care. No television. No radio. No reading materials. For that matter, no visitors. The murder victim can't receive visitors, so why should the murderer? One murderer to a cell. That's where you live. Food slides in under the door ... pizzas. You get an hour a day alone in a concrete courtyard for exercise. The only person you see outside of your prison guard and a doctor would be your attorney. If we could get that set up I'd go

works for me.

The important thing about this, Mark, is Alito's first vote

Alito parts with conservatives on execution.

But before liberals celebrate too much, they should consider the possibility is that rara avis, the consistent right-to-lifer. All too many of those willing to go to the mat to protect the "life" of a small bundle of cells have no problems at all with the death penalty. Alito is the fifth Catholic on the SCOTUS, and may actually follow the Church's official teaching that the death penalty is a right-to-life issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
