Why I carry on long trips...

...because of things like this right here:

STARKE, Fla. — Florida has executed a man convicted of murdering a woman who was kidnapped and raped after her car broke down.

Yes, I know it was a woman, but you just never know what could happen. To think some would make it harder for people like Adela Marie Simmons to defend herself...well, I just don't know what to think about that. What the hell is wrong with those people? More wisdom in the comments:
June 16 1983.
I was not yet 26 years old.
I am now just under 52 years old.
For half of my entire life, this guy has avoided paying for his crime.
We gotta do better than this.

Yes, we do. I don't know if we ever will, though.
