     As I was perusing the Courier-Journal this morning, I noticed in the section called FROM THE WIRE DISPATCHES a short news account about the execution of a death row inmate in Jarratt, Virginia.  The article, entitled, "Killer executed; had to be carried to gurney," contains the following opening sentence:

     An inmate declared his innocence yesterday after he was forcibly carried into Virginia's death chamber and executed.  

     Really?  He continued to declare his innocence even after he was executed?  That must have been some declaration, and I'm sure that it was very surprising indeed to those assembled to witness the proceedings.
