Teresa Lewis didn't pull the trigger. She confessed, pleaded guilty and cooperated with authorities. She has an IQ of 70, right on the border of mental retardation. She has no prior criminal record, and no prior history of violence. The triggermen in the murder got life without parole. Yet she's scheduled to die by lethal injection. She is the first female sentenced to death in Virginia since 1912.

Hillary Clinton won several counties in Virginia, some by very large margine. What do they all have in common? They are almost exclusively populated by whites. Virginia's population state- wide is 73% white and 20% African-American.
Here are the demographics for the first half-dozen or so counties she won (all I've checked so far):
- Allegany: 93% white, 5.5% AA
- Bedford: 92% white, 6.3% AA
- Bland: 95% white, 4.4% AA
- Buchanan: 96% white, 3.2% AA
- Carroll: 98.5% white, 0.7%AA
- Dickenson: 98.7% white, 0.6%AA
- Grayson: 96.7% white, 2.4% AA
