Just so readers are aware, the state of Utah is accepting applicants from interested sharp shooters for the job right now. At the risk of dating myself, I remember when Gary Mark Gilmore chose death by lead poisoning…of course, I was still a kid. My mother told me that of the five shooters, one had a blank. I guess so that each man could feel like he himself was not a killer — his rifle was nothing more than an expensive firework. I think that’s a myth. According to the interwebs, witnesses on the scene counted five holes in the man. So if you’re filling out your Utah application right now, understand, it’s a live fire exercise. And despite the justification of removing a scumbag from the face of the earth, don’t kid yourself. It would be a joyless, cold task. Reply Mailer’s work will be hard to beat. Maybe . . . Truman Capote? I think he’s unavailable. If I got an advance . . . let’s do it! Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
