NYT piece on lethal injection

Sundays sure comes early this time of year:  thanks to How Appealing, I see you can now already get this article from the coming Sunday's New York Times Magazine entitled, "The Needle and the Damage Done: Lethal injections are often botched and sometimes painful; Doctors don't want to administer them; Is it time to kill this form of execution?"  It is an interesting read.

Are they really "OFTEN botched" or is it that there are a handful of cases where something went wrong? And how bad did things do wrong? What should be put in their place (besides LWOP)? And how painful really can they be?
