Well at least you gave the amateur logicians at work here something to play with today.

Entropy not=Extropy
Death Penalty=Entropy Penalty
Death Penalty not=Entropy Penalty not
Entropy penalty not (does not equal) Extropy and
Death not (does not equal) Extropy

This is a poor formalism, but illustrates the point.
