    Wow Uncle Ted. I believe this is the calmest, most rational bit of writing I have ever read. Coming from you, that is some sort of incredible. I have loved your music from the first time I ever saw you live, back in the early 70’s, and have admired your steadfast support of our Constitution and the Second Amendment.I have been waiting to hear what you had to say about this tragedy, and thought you were going to have a long rant (which I most likely would have totally agreed with) but no, here is this entirely calm and sane opinion, which I think perfectly describes how MOST Americans feel. I know there will always be a few nut cases who will say that the killer is some sort of poor innocent young man with mental problems and should not be excecuted, but most of us want to see real justice, speedy justice, done. So what if he’s nuts? He still killed 12 human beings, young, vibrant American kids full of vitality and wonder among them. According to the laws of America he is entitled to a swift trial by his peers. OK. give him one. Do it quickly. If he is found guilty, hang thebastard, give him a lethal injection, kill him in the electric chair. I don’t care which. Just do itquickly, if he is found guilty. I haven’t been confronted by any evidence which might prove him innocent. According to the police, they are positive he is the killer, so put him on trial in a month or two in order to give the lawyers time to prove they have done their jobs and put him on public trial. Keep it public so the politicians can claim they made it transparent, and then when he is found guilty, kill him in public. I think the major reason the death penalty hasn’t made much impact on people who want to murder someone is that they have never witnessed an excecution. Make it a law that all excecutions be made as public as possible again. There is no need to make it a humane excecution. Was he humane to his victims? Make it as graphic and humiliating as possible. Maybe this will give the next creep who wants to take the life of another human being hesitate long enough to change his mind. Thanks for your frank and honest opinion Ted. God bless you. I wish we had many more Americans who think just like you.
