    Capital derives from the latin word for head (the word race, by the way derives frome the arab word ras which also means head)...Kualalumpur? Is it a capital?
    The semantic combination and its practical meaning ss deeply rooted in the bodies&heads of the people who live in capital cities which are located in states which entertain capital punishment.
    Every city has a councel...a redundant one, when it comes to freedom of choice. Convicts are not to choose their way of dying, are they? Why? Because nobody is brave enough to grant them this last choice.
