Today - 2013 11 20

Today is November 20.

That probably means very little to most of you - it is just another Wednesday. But today is an anniversary. A grim anniversary.

It was ten years ago, 2003 11 20, that the brother of one of my dearest friends died. He died at midnight, local time: a victim of the State.

Coincidentally, I have been an opponent of the death penalty for a considerable time: just coming up on ten years to this day. Wonder why.
