News Roundup

As you can imagine, things are hectically busy, as we prepare an open letter to the Governor with hundreds of endorsers across the state and a press event with Sister Helen Prejean to present the letter on Monday! All at the same time as we work to pass our study legislation and prepare for the possible execution of Phillip Workman in less than two weeks! But the media isn't sleeping on the job either!

Today, the Nashville Scene carried a terrific story on the Governor's current position as he refuses to extend the moratorium. Check it out.

Also, on the bright side, Tennessee has one less death row inmate today! The Court of Criminal Appeals has overturned the death sentence of Ricky Thompson. The Chattanooga Times- Free Press has the story.

And, of course, you can check out the Scene's comment on the ruling in their favor to turn over the relevant information on the DOC's review of the executions protocols.

And don't forget to take action online to call on the Governor to extend the moratorium and forward the action alert to all your friends and family!
