    It's just a story to intimidate would be horse thieves oroy. There never was a thief or a hanging party. (Or a gay party for hung men if you prefer - Republican convention perhaps?)

    The news casters and others who are reporting on the "hanging" need to know the difference and when to use each word so as to maintain their credibility.

    And, perhaps if the poor thief had not been so ignorant he may have had a successful career and he would not have been hanged.
