Not to be redundant, but being a traditionalist and possibly the descendent of the high sheriff of London-he who hung the pirate, Mr. Kidd- I prefer the gallows, with all its pagentry, the reading of the crime, the drumroll, and the decision to include weight or no-weight.


Guillotine. Efficient, idiot-proof, and as humane as it's going to get, while also making you crap your pants thinking about it. Or abolition. Either, really.
