The Smiths were a large incredibly proud family. The family tree was full of prominent business, political, and religious leaders. They decided to compile a family history of the legacy for their children and grandchildren. A fine author was hired to do the writing. But one problem arose, what to say about Great Uncle George, who was executed in the electric chair. The author said not to worry he could handle it. He wrote, "Great Uncle George occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution. He was attached to his position by the strongest of ties, and his death came as a great shock."
