The freedoms that we enjoy today, are because of those who we honor today.
And second…a poll…
…from a November 2013 Nebraska statewide survey.
Do you favor or oppose the death penalty?
There will undoubtably be some who say, “Alllll the way back in 2013? Who can even remember that far back! Oh how times have changed!”
Ah, November 2013.
Hollywood was thrusting yet another unwanted Thor movie upon us.
The Huskers were blowing it Minneapolis, yet winning in Ann Arbor.
And a young Lorde, was helping us to recall a cherubic George Brett in a confusing song called, Royals.
Yuh huh. Yeah well we’re rolling with it anyway.
And while the details, crosstabs, etc. etc. are not available for this posting, you will understand that such polling takes place ALL THE TIME by campaigns prior to election season.
2014 was one such season — and a big one for statewide candidates in Nebraska, eh?
And frankly, it would be unusual if members of the Legislature were not already aware of these types of numbers on the issue of capital punishment in Nebraska.
But just tossing them out anyway.
Have at it.
