And if you want to take your mind off things…

…as I do right now, try looking at the Executed Today site I just stumbled upon. It’s well-researched and snarky, with many links, and very comprehensive: covering executions throughout the world and throughout history. You can browse by method, time or place of execution, the crime, the person, etc. Right now I am reading about the horrific deaths of the Pappenheimer family, a Bavarian couple and their sons executed for witchcraft in 1600.

UPDATE: I wrote to the blogger with some executed people who were not yet profiled on his blog. He wrote back inviting me to guest-write entries for both of them. Sweet! The entries can’t be published till early next year (since the blog goes on an “anniversary” format and both people were executed in the spring) so I will have plenty of time to research and write.

    Just checked it out..the site is AWESOME! So detailed, I can’t believe anyone could get so much comprehensive info. Too cool. Thanks, Meaghan. How are you doing? I’ve not been around much, in and out, my son woke up a few weeks ago and went “HEY! I’m TWO!” and much merriment has ensued. But I’ve been able to read updates at least at the butt crack of dawn. Hope you are doing ok and that you will get some good news soon 🙂

      I’m not doing all that well. But the rape case is nearing a successful conclusion.

        I’m sure things will get better. I appreciate your support more than you know.
