I'm no fan of the death penalty -- in any form -- but I found this story on Slate.com an interesting take on why the guillotine should be used.

Seriously. Slate wrote, "Bringing back the guillotine may sound crazy, but it’s certainly better than the current alternative. It’s better for prisoners because quickly severing the head is believed to be one of the quickest, least painful ways to die. And it’s better for organ recipients because the bodies of guillotined prisoners could be more quickly harvested for viable parts, unlike organs that may become unusable after lethal injection due to hypoxemia."

I'm not advocating for this, of course, but it's an informative, if not odd, take on a subject that is very important in today's America.
