Captain Obvious Writes for the NY Times

A life sentence means you die in prison.

Well, duh.

Apparently, capital punishment is way too harsh, because, well, it kills people. So capital punishment opponents bleat that life in prison is still a really harsh penalty, so why not use that instead. Okay, so then the liberals start bleating that um, life in prison is too harsh beause, well, it means LIFE IN PRISON.

The worst criminals are the young, they say, so when a guy is older, you're just being mean if you keep him in prison. Well, Sherlock, if a young guy knows he'll one day get out of prison, you think that a life term is going to be more or less a deterrent then when he knows life may indeed mean life?

Like the noted scholar Pvt. Frost asked, "what the hell are we supposed to use? Harsh language?"
