I read with great interest about Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell’s “error of haste and not of heart,” which resulted in changing Confederate History Month to Civil War in Virginia Month. I believe that was a good remedy for a poor decision.

If, in a few months, he regrets allowing Teresa Lewis to be executed, I wonder how he will remedy that poor decision.

It never ceases to amaze me that those who are most mistrustful of government, because it is impersonal and a threat to liberty, are typically the strongest supporters of capital punishment.
