Several of our Esteemed Readers had a great time this weekend tabling at several events featuring Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking). I don't know what it is she does to keep her energy up through the mad schedule she keeps (I'd buy a book about that!), but what an inspiration she is!
At our table we were collecting signatures for a petition for Cathy Henderson, an inmate on Texas death row scheduled to be executed on April 18. Sister Helen is her spiritual advisor. We are sad to report that Ms. Henderson lost her last Supreme Court appeal today. We'll keep you all abreast of actions you can take on her behalf, meanwhile you can visit this website to learn more about her case.
