It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

This Week in the Indy - May 3

In The Amarillo Independent this week-May 3, 2007:

On April 23, the Potter-Randall Democratic Club hosted a candidate forum for the mayoral and City Commission candidates. We have transcribed that forum, and I have published the first part of it in this week’s Indy.

Also, in cooperation with NewsChannel10, we get Marissa Bagg’s insight and feelings on covering an execution by lethal injection.

We hope Marissa’s observations about witnessing such an event will help our readers get a feel for what it was like to be there. And, perhaps it will stimulate some discussion about the death penalty.

Due to some personnel changes, it is possible that activating this week’s Web site might be a little bit slow. Please be patient.
