Government... can't be trusted to control its own bureaucrats or collect taxes equitably or fill a pothole, much less decide which of it's citizens to kill.

A Conversation with the Superintendent

A Conversation with the former Oregon State Penitentiary Superintendent Frank Thompson

Frank Thompson, former superintendent of the Oregon State Penitentiary, has spoken with legislatures in Maryland and Nebraska; with governors in Colorado and Oregon; and was recently published in the New York Times.
