Ohio's new death penalty: Killing them with beauty.

Oh, terribly copy editing. Where would I be without you? From an AP story, found on the Strib's website about a denied appeal for a condemned killer in Ohio.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction announced Friday that it was eliminating the standard three-drug lethal cocktail, used in dozens of states, and instead would use a single, powerful dose of aesthetic. A backup method allows for the injection of two drugs directly into an inmate's muscle. (Emphasis added)

I guess that's not cruel and unusual punishment, is it?
