1. James Spader
He made the best speech against the Death Penalty ever. Nearly 1/2 of all executions occurred in Texas. That is incredible.

3. Yes, I saw that! I used to live in Tx. They executed several per month!!
It was such a common practice, they didn't do the typical interview fron outside the prison or anything. It was just a blip on the nightly news. XXX was executed at 6:01PM tonight.

5. Spaders speach and the ending of the show
magnificently displayed what kind of monsters some of these people are. And they have the gall to argue in the house tonight that they represent a cult of life.

It is time for decent people to take America back.

6. ironic isn't it...
Bush flying back to sign legislation to protect life after his dismal record of preserving life as governor. To quote someone who I despise, "First he voted for and then he didn't." - Hannity
