Porch Quote 

Staying the course
"That's incredibly sloppy and tacky. There's a reason why there is a tradition in the governor's office to wait until the courts rule."
--Ken Rose, director of the N.C. Center for Death Penalty Litigation, on Gov. Mike Easley's March 1 decision denying clemency to condemned prisoner Ernest McCarver. Soon after Easley's decision, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a temporary stay of McCarver's execution. Quoted in The News & Observer.
