Texas Death Row Inmates Share Final Words

During the recent discussion about the case of Cameron Todd Willingham, his last profanity-laced words were discussed in our comments. So when I saw this article about Texas making the last words of Death Row inmates publicly available, I was hoping I could see for myself what he said.

But Willingham’s statement has the last bit omitted, due to that very profanity. Reading quickly over a number of the statements on the list of executed offenders, the first thing to hit me is the truth of the old saying: There are no atheists in foxholes.

UPDATE: I neglected to mention that the Texas Forensic Science Commission will review Willingham’s case on Friday, for all the good it will do him.
