Comment:        RE: SHK 15.1127 Portia Strikes Again!

Perhaps someone could suggest to Mr. Weiss, who fails to see the
relevance of the court's review of a lethal injection suit, that he read
The Merchant of Venice, a play by William Shakespeare. There he will
find striking and amusing resemblances between the petitioner's argument
and Portia's decision for dismissal of Shylock's claims against Antonio.
