Where are savings in death penalty repeal?
I read Gerald Stansbury's postulation ("Unrepresentative committee blocks Md. death penalty repeal vote," Jan. 2) that the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee doesn't include enough "people of color," by which he means African-Americans. Can't take issue with that. He may be right, and it certainly isn't the first time that something failed to be representative — take, for instance the recent gerrymandering of the Western Maryland congressional district.
