It's pretty much a wash

Today's Birmingham News issues story is on corrections, and the gubernatorial candidates are all pretty much in alignment there. All four support some type of sentencing reform to alleviate prison overcrowding, and all four are for the death penalty. Former Gov. Don Siegelman dissented from the other three, however, on the question of private prisons; he's absolutely against them, whereas the others either see them as a necessary evil (Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley and Gov. Bob Riley) or haven't studied the issue (former Chief Justice Roy Moore).

Reverand Roy then added: "But I'll prayerfully study my Bible for the aswer regarding this issue as soon as possible. Amen."
