Georgia Justice I'm going out on a limb and charging that the two affirming judges simply do not want this murderer to live. So they are finding whatever technicalities they can find to see that he's executed -- mental retardation or not.

Our New Double-Standard for Justice Our judges seem to be as befuddled as the rest of us when it come to defining exactly what 'terrorism' is and is not -- and whenand how people should be punished for it. One of the judges in this case could only comment that, like porn, he kew it when he saw it. Shouldn't we have to have a tad more precision than that?

Whaddya Mean, Don't Vote! Our candidates for president may think as little of us as many of us think of them. They have put the nation deep into catatonia by what they said - and didn't say.

Waiting for Lefty Wondering what ever happened to the prisoners who were sent to Guantanamo Bay? Many were released -- after years of captivity. Other were scheduled ti be tried in civilian courts, but Cibgress demurred and Obama didn't fight. Instead, he created a third-class systice system and is about to try these guys before Military Commissions -- a system most lawyers find has beebn designed to produce, not justice, but convictions.

Bahrain's Cat and Mouse Games The PR machine grinds out self-congratulatory rhetoric about Bahrain becoming a model for civil rights practice while the police and the courts dish out long jailtime for those who speak out. American's Ally!

Not for the Faint-Hearted The Internet won't do all your work. You need to know what you're looking for. Stories like these are a lot harder to find than the latest steamy affair initiated by a guy who wants to represent you next year.
