Truth stranger than fiction:
Lack of swordsmen leads Saudi Arabia to consider dropping public beheadings as method of execution.
Difficult times. I blame it on the modern generation. No "real men" any more.
But it's not as thought the Saudis have run out of sensible punishment options is it? I mean, there's presumably still hanging and stoning and lashing, right? Maybe the French guillotine or the American electric chair might look interesting too, now. Could even be a nice little export earner there.
