Ohio Murderer Faces Execution Next Week:  Dennis McGuire, sentenced to death for the 1989 rape and stabbing murder of a newly married, pregnant 22-year-old, lost his last bid to avoid execution when Gov. John Kasich turned down his request for clemency.  Robert Higgs of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that McGuire's lawyers argued he deserved clemency because he was abused as a child, lacked proper role models, and has impaired brain function.  McGuire is scheduled for execution by lethal injection on January 16, and will be the first person to use Ohio's new, two-drug, lethal injection cocktail.   

Bank Teller Can't Read Holdup Note:  A scene from Woody Allen's hilarious 1969 movie, Take The Money And Run, played out in an Antioch, CA bank yesterday.  Jon David Kahn of Breitbart.com reports that would-be bank robber Jamal Garrett handed a Wells Fargo Bank teller a note, which the teller could not decipher.  Just like in the movie, the teller contacted her manager for assistance.  While they were figuring out what the note said, Garrett, who was on parole at the time, fled and was later arrested.
