VALLEY PERSPECTIVE

Death Penalty

February 11, 2001

* It costs about $600,000 to lock up a man for life but nearly $10 million to execute him, after exhausting all proper appeals. I wonder if the reader who suggested (Letters to the Valley Edition, Jan. 21) that when the death penalty is abolished, bleeding-heart liberals who have opposed capital punishment should board violent felons in their homes at government expense, would also let us keep, say, half the difference saved to the taxpayers? Sign me up.
