News reports tell of a "bungled execution" in Arizona because it took two hours for a convicted murderer to die ["New outcry over lethal injections," News, July 25]. In my opinion, the execution was not bungled -- the convicted murderer died.

The guy killed two people. Only the civil liberties types are mourning his passing. The family of the victim has suffered for 25 years. What's two hours in comparison?
