Quote of note
"Praise the Lord Jesus. God is worthy to be praised. God's mercy triumphs over judgment, and I feel good." - Duane Edward Buck, a Texas inmate on death row who received a last-minute reprieve from the U.S. Supreme Court. Buck’s sentencing was called into question because a psychologist testified at the hearing that African-Americans and Hispanics are likely to commit crimes and be violent. The Texas Board of Pardons voted against clemency earlier this week, and Gov. Rick Perry said he would abide by the ruling.
