Looksl ike they made a good call, and actually gave an award to a Muslim individual who deserved it.

Funny how the guy who lives elsewhere calls it an embarassment, whereas I, who have lived my entire life in the state of Illinois, have never been prouder of my state or its governor than when Ryan commuted all the death sentences. I was hoping he would get the Nobel this year, but I have no quarrel with the woman who did receive it.

Ditto... I thought it was perfectly reasonable thing to do, regardless of whether your for or against the death penalty. If you've lost all faith in the process, you sure as hell don't continue to exectue people. And a Republican Governor, no less....
