How Texas executed an innocent man

It's all right here.

But if you don't have the time to read it, watch "Nightline" tonight.

It's the sad, sad story of Cameron Todd Willingham, executed for murder in the fire deaths of his three young children in Corsicana, TX.

Losers in the story:

* ignorant arson investigators who rely on "junk science"
*our system of using incompetent court-appointed attorneys to defend capital cases
* psychologists who masquerade as "experts" to demonize the accused
* the Texas Board of Pardons & Paroles, which issue rulings in death cases without looking at "the facts"
* Texas Gov. Rick Perry
* the poor guy who was lethally injected
