Tom Brokaw On Imus: I Love A Columnist Who Wouldn't Execute Terrorists
As I suggested in our old "Magazine Watch" feature on the December 4, 2000 editions of the news magazines,
Anna felt that President Clinton could leave office with a big bang: "He should call for a moratorium on federal executions to study the obvious [racial] bias in the system, and commute the sentences of those now awaiting death to life in prison without parole. One of these men is Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber; the outcry, surely, would be enormous. But the president need never run for office again, and so he can follow his considerable intellect and his legendary empathy to the inescapable conclusion that executions make murderers of us all."
