Well, It's Been a While
Well, I know I haven't been posting in a while. I have been without broadband at home for the last several month and that has made postings difficult. I will get in the swing of things when my DSL gets installed on Monday.
Lots of things are happening. Tom Delay is up to his eyeballs. Randy "Duke" Cunningham has resigned because of corruption charges and the Bush regime seems to be imploding. Hopefully, the Democrats can make some hay with this situation and gain some seats.

Re: [francesnewton2005] NCADP Conference in Austin Oct. 27 -30, 2005
Thought you might be interested in this editorial about another death row case - this one in Virginia.
Examiner Editorial - No evidence, no execution
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear the case of Arlington's only death row inmate, despite the fact that a court clerk threw away nearly all the physical evidence days after a state law went into effect requiring that it be preserved.
Robin McKennel Lovitt was sentenced to death for fatally stabbing Champion Billiards Hall manager Clayton Dicks - a 45-year-old single father raising two sons - with a pair of scissors during a 1998 robbery. But after sparing his life just four and a half hours before he was scheduled to die by lethal injection on July 11, the high court turned down Lovitt's case on Monday without comment.
Arlington prosecutors say that throwing away key evidence was just a simple mistake that would not have made any difference in the outcome. The Virginia Supreme Court agreed, ruling that the deputy clerk - who said he was just trying to "free up space" in the Arlington Circuit Court's evidence room - did not act in bad faith when he ordered the blood-caked scissors and other evidence destroyed.

Dealing with Venezuela
From the Drug War Rant - http://blogs.salon.com/0002762/2005/08/23.html#a1115
So after Chavez kicked out the DEA from Venezuela (accusing them of spying and running drugs), the U.S. government retaliated ( http://blogs.salon.com/0002762/2005/08/12.html#a1102 ) by revoking Visas and threatening their "rating" with the U.S.
Now so-called religious leader Pat Robertson has weighed in ( http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2005-08-22-robertson-_x.htm ) to give the "Christian" solution:
He must have an unusual Bible."We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said.
"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he continued. "It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

Re: Frances Newton
I read your Dec. 2, 2004 column, Mock gone, not mockery. - http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/metropolitan/casey/2929494 Please consider running another column on Frances Newton. She is set to be executed in less than a month and having read the circumstances of the case I seriously believe she might be innoncent and that the murderers may be walking around free. Even if someone supports the death penalty, they still should not be for executing people who are innocent.
