I was just getting a candle out to light for Lisa Montgomery so I could blow out the flame at the time of her execution, but I see she's been given an 11.9th hour stay!

A federal judge has stayed the execution and ordered a competency hearing: https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/12/u...yed/index.html

The prosecution is appealing, but I don't see any way that's going to matter, because Biden will be president and the executions will cease.

I'm going to pop a champagne cork instead now. When I sober up I'll send Judge James Hanlon an email congratulating him on his excellent decision.
