The death of John Ferguson  
"...What happened here goes beyond the man. It goes to a system where the language of the law says one thing and the implementation of the law says another. It goes to a constitutional regime where we all pat one another on the back for our common decency - we don't execute the mentally retarded, we don't execute the insane - while executing the mentally retarded and the insane. The smugness of that, the hypocrisy of it, is breathtaking."
