A message from the fine and upstanding bbovenguy:
"I believe you mean Kansas, not Nebraska. Nebraska is where they just abolished the death penalty, over the governor's veto."
You want to know what's really stupid? I was a bit sleep deprived and looked up Brownback and Kansas on Google to make sure I was right. And somehow, it STILL came out Nebraska. I blew it, and I apologize and regret the error.
I'm also aware I got the quote from Pink Floyd wrong, but I don't like Pink Floyd anyway, so no regrets there.
