Two were executed the week of Oct. 13. Two were scheduled for this week. And two more the week after that. Then six more in November, adding to Texas' standing as the nation's most active death penalty state.

    they're number 1! they're number............

    hmmmmm, just doesn't have quite the excitement that it should. really, i think texas is missing a great opportunity here, they should do these at the half-time of UT football games. talk about a ratings bonanza! can notre dame offer the fans and tv viewing audience anything like this, for a half-time show? i think not!

    if gov. perry had any smarts, he'd be on the phone to ESPN, selling this baby as a sure-fire winner for the sat. college football ratings game!

    where the heck is unbridled, amoral, greed breathing capitalism, when you really need it?
