Screw You Scrooge

Arizona, Oklahoma, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky have run out of sodium thiopental, the 'killin juice' used for lethal injections ... Texas has 39 available doses that expire in March and only three executions scheduled before then. Still, Texas isn't sharing because "We have a responsibility to ensure we have an adequate supply of the drug."

But don't worry, neighbors ... a federal judge ruled that Oklahoma can use pentobarbital, the drug used to euthanize animals. Arkansas gave Oklahoma a needed dose to carry out an execution last month.
