About darn time
I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride,
With sword and pistol by my side.
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade.
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade.
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five:
But I am still alive.
I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide.
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico.
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed:
But I am living still.
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide;
Where steel and water did collide.
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below.
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound:
But I am still around.
I'll always be around,.
And around and around and around and around.
I fly a starship across the Universe divide.
And when I reach the other side,
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can.
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain;
But I will remain.
And I'll be back again,
And again and again and again and again.
I wonder if Sarandon/ Farrell/ Jackson etc. will throw a vigil for this man rather than the victims...
Let him come back as a raindrop or whatever.
Just rid him of this earth as he currently is - a sadistic slaughterer of innocent people.
Apparently he had a one-track mind.
His train of thought let him off at the wrong station.
Yup, the guy was clearly loco and letting off some steam. Is that any way to conduct oneself?
HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Train-hopping serial killer Angel Maturino Resendiz was put to death Tuesday night in Texas.
Before he was executed, he said, "I deserve what I am getting" -- and asked for forgiveness.
Resendiz mumbled a prayer, saying "Lord, forgive me. Lord, forgive me" as he waited for the execution to proceed. His feet nervously tapped a white sheet partially covering him. He acknowledged the presence of relatives watching through a nearby window and then turned and looked toward the relatives of victims in another room.
"I want to ask if it is in your heart to forgive me," he said in English, looking toward relatives of some of his victims. "You don't have to. I know I allowed the devil to rule my life. I just ask you to forgive me and ask the Lord to forgive me for allowing the devil to deceive me."
"I thank God for having patience for me. I don't deserve to cause you pain. You did not deserve this. I deserve what I am getting."
He then said a prayer in Spanish.
Seven minutes later he was pronounced dead at 8:05 p.m. Central time.
Benton said the death penalty -- what he calls this sort of "conclusion" to heinous killers -- is the appropriate solution.
Well, well, well...apparently he doesn't view himself as quite so immortal now does he.
