The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): Convicted killer Tommy Lynn Sells was executed Thursday in Huntsville after the Supreme Court refused to stop the execution and force Texas to disclose the source of its lethal drug. Is it right for the state to keep the drug supplier’s name secret?

Perhaps the condemned should die like their victims did. R Craig Bolander

The only reason the typical person would want to know who is supplying the lethal drugs is so they can cause trouble. As far as I’m concerned, it is the State of Texas that is supplying the drugs and carrying out the execution. If people don’t like it, they should take it up with the State of Texas. Timothy Fish

Why does anyone need to know? Sounds like the drug is doing its job. Next! Sergio L Guadarrama

No. As a tax-paying citizen, I am paying for this procedure. I should know which politician’s relative is getting my money. Kevin Reichenstein

Sure, why not? Who cares what they use? JC Ramirez

Does not matter. Public hanging would be better. Televised. Gary Shafer

Does it matter? There was always an empty gun on the firing squad. Susan Taylor Eurto

Yes. Lesley Hensell Demond
