So Long, Farewell...

A white female thug was executed by the fine folks in Georgia tonight.
From the NY Daily News: After several last ditch efforts to keep their client alive, Georgia has executed its only female death row inmate.
Kelly Renee Gissendaner died by lethal injection of pentobarbital Wednesday at 12:21 a.m. at the state prison in Jackson. She was convicted of murder in the February 1997 slaying of her husband. She conspired with her lover, who stabbed Douglas Gissendaner to death.
Gissendaner was the first woman executed in the state in 70 years.
The United States Supreme court denied Gissendaner, 47, three stays of execution on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court of Georgia also denied her a stay of execution Tuesday and the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles declined to grant her clemency after it met on earlier on Tuesday to consider new testimony from supporters. The board didn't give a reason for the denial, but said it had carefully considered her request for reconsideration.
Gissendaner was previously scheduled for execution Feb. 25, but that was delayed because of a threat of winter weather. Her execution was reset for March 2, but corrections officials postponed that execution "out of an abundance of caution" because the execution drug appeared "cloudy."  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/execution-draws-woman-georgia-death-row-article-1.2379390
She still lived 18 years longer than her husband.  Had she ever heard of the word "divorce"?
