  1. Your posting leads me to ponder again the rationale for the death penalty; humans over time have made sometimes questionable decisions about which crimes ought to be punished by death, and history is filled with especially questionable relativistic decisions about the treatment of spies (i.e., traitors to some but heroes to others).
