Some Good News, For A Change
- Remember Elizabeth Smart? She disappeared from her home in Salt Lake City about nine months ago. Naturally, everybody assumed the worst. She's been found and she's OK. Prediction -- this one's gonna get weird.
- The Supreme Court blocked the execution of Delma Banks Jr. While I'm not unalterably opposed to the idea of the death penalty, this case had far too many of the characteristics that set off warning bells. Incompetent defense attorney, prosecutorial misconduct, unreliable witnesses, and, over all, a sense that procedure is more important than justice.
