Punishments

What an appropriate apposition: The story of former state Sen. Alan Robbins selling out to a lobbyist's bribes right next to a description of SB 454 introduced by Sen. Bill Lockyer (Feb. 28).

If it could be worth felony punishment for enabling people to cheat cable companies out of their grossly exaggerated premium channel fees, then perhaps the death penalty is the required remedy for senators who take money from big companies to serve narrow interests at the expense of fairness.
