Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | DEATH PENALTY Misplaced mercy It is appalling how many tears are wasted on this filth ("Rethink executions," Sept. 17). How about giving the same respect to the victims and their families by mentioning names, ages, and the nature of the crime in editorials and letters?
