"A myth that serves as the perfect shroud and justification for institutional power."

Muckraker columnist Norman Solomon was at San Quentin two nights ago:

"The operative God of the night was a governor [. . . .] Hours later, a new killing would be sanitized by law and euphemism. (Before dawn, a newscast on NPR's 'Morning Edition' would air the voice of a media witness who had observed the execution by lethal injection. Within seconds, his on-air report twice referred to the killing of Williams as a 'medical procedure.')"

They are the guardians of our sleep.
