      A Red-Letter Day, and a Party to Match
      By MARC LACEY

      LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. — When Arizona executes prisoners, it uses
      lethal injection — not drawing and quartering, hanging or beheading,
      all of which have fallen out of favor since they were used with some
      regularity in Europe centuries back.

      But for a brief period this week, the state will be simulating that
      gorier era, when the most notorious outlaws have their heads put on
      stakes and displayed for all to see. Red food dye will take the place
      of real blood, of course, and plastic mannequin heads will be used
      instead of actual skulls.
