A couple news items on Texas's murder of Cameron Todd Willingham. First, Chris Orr points us to this video of Willingham's prosecutor, John Jackson, reiterating his theory that although we no longer have any idea if a crime was committed we can be sure that Willingham was guilty:
Hey, sometimes your horoscope comes true, and that's good enough for a death penalty conviction!
Meanwhile, Rick Perry continues to assiduously cover up the murder he committed, firing more members of the insubordinate state commission who have the strange belief that murders of innocent people should be investigated. And while I doubt anybody enough here is naive enough to buy Perry's explanation, but just in case Perry pressured the chairman of the commission before firing him. And, amazingly, Perry's actions may well be politically beneficial.
