Bali bombers "request beheading"

The Beeb reports that three Muslims convicted in the 2002 Bali bombings -- which killed 202 innocent people -- appear to have run out of courtroom stunts and games, have recognized that the sentence upon them is death, and are hoping to go out via "a more humane form of punishment than firing squad."

As if they should get anything more than the amount of dignity afforded to the three Christians who were, according to many, railroaded and mob-ruled toward their own firing squads the other day.

They hope to dictate to the courts, rather than the other way around. Well, what's that old saying? What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the Muslims...

Quite frankly, I think they ought to be seated buck-naked on exploding, pig-shaped toilets and blasted into the afterlife via Uranus. But firing squad is a reasonable alternative.
