Death penalty foe to relocate
Death penalty activist Sister Helen Prejean is relocating her home and office from New Orleans--where both are under water--to Baton Rouge after fleeing before Katrina came ashore. On Thursday, she was in Orlando, Fla., addressing public defenders about her opposition to the death penalty.
"I am comparing the death penalty system to the levees in New Orleans," she said. "They told us they would work, but they didn't."
