4. From what I am gathering from our DU threads today....
It looks like there are networks who are actually discussing the hanging and how they are going to present it to the public masses ....Here is a DU thread. I've seen others through out the day.

I've been working all day at my regular job and now I'm at the hospital working. Obviously I've had lots of down time to be on DU and get paid for it.

Get on over to True Value Hardware...

Our rope is tested, true and strong enough to do the job....

12. Halliburton definitely came to mind!
What about some beer companies? How about some pharmaceutical or insurance companies as sponsors?

Here is one....
