PYRRHIC : In classical Greek or Latin poetry, this foot consists of two unaccented syllables--the opposite of a spondee . At best, a pyrrhic foot is an unusual aberration in English verse, and most prosodists (including me!) do not accept it as a foot at all because it contains no accented syllable. Normally, the context or prevailing iambs, trochees, or spondees in surrounding lines overwhelms any potential pyrrhic foot, and a speaker reading the foot aloud will tend artificially to stress either the first or last syllable. See meter for more information.
Traveling on the bus for short distances isnt so bad. I ought to know. I used Greyhound all the time to travel between Seattle and Bellingham where I went to school. Its a nice quiet ride. But long distance is nothing short of hell. On a trip from Cleveland, Ohio to Seattle, I faced three days without being able to shower and the smell of fellow passengers in the same bus. Sleep was almost impossible. Just try to sleep on one of those seats at 6 . with a baby bawling its head off right behind you. I was so tired by the time we got to Spokane, I fell asleep in the bus terminal and almost missed the bus out. Skip the cross-country bus. Take a plane. Stay home. Do anything--just avoid long distance bus travel.
Another argument raised against the death penalty stems from the irreversible nature of the punishment. In this regard, Bradley (488) asserts that the death penalty is vulnerable to cases associated with wrongful executions and provides no room to review the conviction. In this regard, Bradley suggests alternative forms of punishment with equal severity such as life imprisonment without parole. These alternative forms of punishment provide reasonable grounds for the death penalty to be abolished. For instance, life imprisonment without parole is equally severe and addresses the loopholes associated with the death penalty such as wrongful convictions.
