Death Row prisoners wanting to know the drugs used to put them to death should be reminded of the crimes they committed and given several injections of heroin — the same heroin recovered from drug busts.

I’m sure we have stockpiles of it, and it’s free.

The park being built for the homeless should be erected with the help of the homeless and maintained by the homeless. Nothing should be free.

Same goes for people on welfare and food stamps. They should be put to work volunteering for the needy.

Our parks, rivers and streets are in need of cleanup and repair as well as other areas. Put these people to work.

If we can build a pipeline from Canada to southern Texas for oil, why can’t we build pipelines from the Mississippi River, which overflows each year, to the much-in-need drought areas in the Southwest?

We have got to take guns away from the general public. There is too much killing.
