Who's for the death penalty? 

Paul G. House was accused of murdering his next-door neighbor in 1986. The prosecution claimed that he had murdered her in the course of raping her, and introduced chemical evidence that his semen was found on her clothing. He was convicted and sentenced to death.

Now it turns out that DNA analysis shows that the semen was in fact that of the victim's husband. Paul House is still on death row. <>

All eight Republican-appointed judges from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals who sat on the en banc hearing on House's habeas corpus petition voted to deny it; all seven Democratic-appointed judges voted to grant it, with six of them agreeing that he had in fact proven his innocence.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
