Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Gov. Warner Goes Up In My Book
Citing the destruction of DNA evidence by a court clerk, VA-Gov Mark Warner commuted a death sentence yesterday, the day before the expected 1,000th execution since the death penalty was reinstated in the U.S. in 1976.
"The Commonwealth must ensure that every time this ultimate sanction is carried out, it is done fairly."
What could possibly make more sense? Of course we should be 100% sure before we execute someone. The fact that many other executions happen amidst uncertainty is an awful manifestation of some people's greedy and regressive desire for revenge.
Congratulations, Governor Warner, for making the right decision.
