From the AP today:
HOUSTON (AP) - A federal judge told a group of potential jurors that their job was not to seek vengeance against Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay and former CEO Jeffrey Skilling as jury selection began on Monday in the premier criminal trial to emerge from the biggest corporate scandal in recent years.

Spot has no quarrel with the judge's remarks. But remember, retribution - a little classier word that means essentially the same thing as vengeance - is often explicitly advanced by advocates of the death penalty. Why the difference?
