The Null Device

Killing by the book: In a few weeks, convicted Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh is due to be sent off to Redneck Valhalla; to mark the occasion, freedom-of-information web site The Smoking Gun has obtained and posted online the 54-page "protocol manual" for executing convicted federal prisoners; written in dry, bureaucratic language on what seems to be a typewriter, it covers everything from the last meal and disposition of personal effects to the handling of witnesses and protesters, as well as the mundane necessities of purchasing lethal chemicals and cleaning up afterwards.
