Question of the Day
Drug for execution came from Britain
FLORENCE | The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says the state’s supply of a scarce lethal injection drug was obtained from England.
This is the first time a state has acknowledged obtaining sodium thiopental from an overseas source since a shortage of the drug started affecting executions in the U.S. this year.
Chief Deputy Attorney General Tim Nelson told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the state revealed the drug’s origins to let the public know it comes from a trustworthy source.
Jeffrey Landrigan’s execution was scheduled for Tuesday morning. But it remains on hold after a federal judge delayed the lethal injection because of questions about the drug’s origins.
Landrigan’s lawyers are challenging the use of the English drug because it is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Rocky and Bullwinkle creator dies at 90
CARMEL | Pioneering TV cartoon artist Alexander Anderson Jr., who created Rocky the flying squirrel and Bullwinkle the moose, has died. He was 90.
Mr. Anderson’s son Terry told the Los Angeles Times his father died at a Carmel nursing home Friday after struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. The elder Anderson was a longtime resident of Pebble Beach.
Alexander Anderson teamed up with his childhood friend and former University of California, Berkeley, fraternity brother Jay Ward to make low-budget TV cartoons.
Their creations included Crusader Rabbit and his pal, Rags the Tiger, and Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties.
The syndicated “Crusader Rabbit” became the first animated TV series in the 1950s. “Rocky and His Friends” debuted in 1959 on ABC.
