True, my comments may seem a bit offensive, but not nearly as offensive as the attempt by some - especially in Hollywoodland - to glorify a cold-blooded murderer to the point of deifying him. As far as I'm concerned, the 24 years that Tookie Williams spent on death row was 24 years of life more than he deserved. Certainly his innocent victims would have been grateful for just 24 more hours of life to spend with the loved ones they left behind. Williams denied them that. more...
Vince Aut Morire does his best Toni Basil impression to bring you an ode to Tookie Williams and his Hollywood cheering section.

UPDATE: Arnold says nuh-uh. Sorry Took. Time to go.
It won't happen. First, the federal courts are likely to grant a stay or two. After all, he was only sentenced about 24 years ago. What's the rush? Secondly, I believe that the main reason the execution of Tookie Williams won't be executed is because Schwarzenegger knows full well that as soon as Tookie's death is announced there will be riots in South Central Los Angeles and elsewhere. The huge media exploitation of this story has made drop-dead sure of that. There are thugs just waiting for an excuse ... not a reason, an excuse. The rioting, of course, will lead to wide scale looting. There are a lot of aspiring rappers and NBA superstars who could really use a nice flat-screen television right now.Boortz of course is being a little tongue-in-cheek here, but being a cynic he probably believes it. Call me pollyanna, but I have a feeling that Arnold will hold to his oath of office and allow the "termination", in the best interest of the people of Cal-ee-forn-ee-a.
