Last night I was too lazy to get up off of Kelly's futon (it's the only mattress in the house right now), so I sat through the evening news on the Tampa CBS station. They did some local news, some national news, some weather, some sports, and called it a night. All fine, but I was disappointed by what's considered news. If you didn't know, yesterday the Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty could only be sentenced by juries, not by judges. More importantly, they made the ruling retroactive, so 120 death-row inmates in five states now have to be re-sentenced. This is a major news story, imo. But it didn't get included in the newscast. You know what did get three minutes, though? Utah police want to talk to a handyman who used to work in the house where Elizabeth Smart lived.

I've seen it, it's not that great.
