Bringing back the chair

It's a dirty job. Someone's gotta do it.
Louisiana is one of a handful of states that has had problems finding lethal injection drugs. Pharmacies that supply the drugs are either succumbing to the pressure of anti-death penalty advocates or distancing themselves from the controversy, depending on who you ask.

"[Pharmaceutical companies ] don't want to be involved in taking a life," said Marjorie Esman, ACLU of Louisiana. "If you can't do it in a way that has been deemed less inhumane and so you're going back to a way that has been deemed more inhumane."
Just to reiterate, American drug companies, among the most ruthless bastards on Earth, are becoming uncomfortable with their role in capital punishment. 

Entergy, of course, will have no problem with it.
