Arguments for capital punishment

To the Editor:

I just picked up this morning's Caledonian-Record and saw that two of Vermont's greatest living arguments for capitol punishment are now free and "getting on with their lives," 10 years after they murdered Tashia Beer's stepmother.

Since other states advertise themselves for their attributes, perhaps Vermont should start running an ad that goes something like this:" Hey Kids. Tired of mom and pop always telling you what to do? Come to Vermont and kill your parents. Even if you get caught you'll be out of jail in the blink of an eye and then you'll have almost your whole lifetime in which to spend their money."

Just think, if the Menendez brothers had been smart enough to suggest to their parents that they go skiing in Vermont; instead of wasting away in some California prison; they'd be on the French Riviera living it up on their parent's money.
