Execution of Killer-Rapist Is Postponed After Doctors Walk Out

Suddenly doctors had a question of ethics? After all the people put to death in this country, now, they have to question the moral fabric of putting someone to death. I bet the prisoner feels as lucky as a woman in a shoe shop where the owner just collapsed dead. You go waiting for the governor to call but instead, the doctors get a sudden change of heart and stage a strike. Someone up in Heaven either really likes you or, wants you to suffer the anticipation of dying a bit longer. (It's probably the second one)

The scheduled execution of convicted murderer-rapist Michael Morales was postponed this morning after court-ordered anesthesiologists refused to participate in the process. The prison warden abruptly changed plans and announced that the inmate would be executed with a lethal dose of barbiturates. Warden Steven Ornoski announced that the prison indends to carry out the execution at 7:30 p.m. today with an unprecedented single dose of sodium pentothal, a lethal barbiturate, rather than the standard three-chemical potion.

Change of plans Mr. Morales, the anesthesiologists have walked out so we're just gonna bash you in the head with this here table leg until you pass away. Brace yourself.

Injecting Morales with five grams of barbiturates was expected to lengthen the execution from the usual 11 minutes to as long as 45 minutes.

That would make for 45 minutes of the most awkward small talk in the history of mankind.
"So...um...any regrets?"
"A few."
"Read any good books lately?"
"You starting to feel...umm...sick or anything?"
" I feel fine."
"Well, that's good, that's good...um...wanna play 21 questions?"
