Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) - Lethal Injections



John Oliver discusses the lethal injection process, which is definitely not as pleasant as talking about a squeaking frog.

1. Here's the link

The frog video keeps looping, so you don't have to keep clicking it to hear it chirp. Again... and again... and again.

2. Watched a Black Mirror episode that dealt with punishment for a horrific crime.

To me, the message is that experiencing any degree of "enthusiasm" for the punishment visited upon the criminal makes us every bit as guilty as the perpetrator. It brings out an ugliness in our souls and does nothing to honor the innocent victim.

4. He really is - and he's found his medium!

He has his own show where he has an entire week to put together an informative and relatively in depth presentation on whatever newsworthy subject that he wants! I know that a lot of us hoped that he'd end up taking over The Daily Show after he did such a stellar job when Jon Stewart took time off for his movie. But he has said that he dislikes talking about Trump - so he leaves the breaking news to the weeknight guys and is able to address issues that interest him - and he's still very funny!
