Subject:        Portia Strikes Again!

Hi,

The following quote is from an AP story by Gina Holland:

"The Supreme Court ruled for the first time Monday that a death row
inmate can pursue a last-ditch claim that lethal injection is
unconstitutionally cruel.

"In a rare unanimous decision on a capital punishment case, justices
sided with a convicted Alabama killer who claims his veins are so
damaged from drug abuse that executioners might have to cut deeply into
his flesh to administer the deadly drugs."

Stay healthy,
Tom
