Lagniappe - Finally, a Republican with the "cojones" to be REALLY pro-life. Republican Gov. George Ryan of Illinois, as the papers are quipping, emptied the state's death row. How outraged will Republican pundits be? I hope plenty outraged ... so much so that they can't keep this brave and morally correct act out of the news. All of George Ryan's foibles aside, he is to be admired for this singular act. I can't say I think the man deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, as some are saying; but he'll certainly be remembered and honored much more for this than for anything else he's done in office. Good for you, Mr. Ryan!
