Last week my karma had me on a plane headed to Ogden, Utah. Why exactly a lad expounding the concept of karma would be headed into Mormon country was a little puzzling, but I never miss an opportunity to look at the world with an engaging mind. I have to tell you, the flight out was a little rocky in places and my coffee, served by a smiling stewardess, was swirling around in my cup quite vigorously at times. I always like to get a window seat, and as the plane was shaking with some serious rocking that would probably have delighted Jerry Lee Lewis, I remembered instead the "Twilight Zone" movie and took a quick glance out the window to make sure some little man wasn't  pulling at the wing while we were traveling through  the thick clouds.

DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- A condemned Utah inmate has lost his bid for clemency from a state parole board, making his execution by firing squad on Friday more likely than ever. Ronnie Lee Gardner had asked the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole to show mercy and commuted his death sentence to life in prison without parole. The board denied the request on a unanimous vote, chairman Curtis Garner said Monday at hearing inside the Utah State Prison. In its written rationale, the board said the jury's verdict imposing Gardner's death sentence 25 years ago was not inappropriate and that no sufficient reason exists to grant clemency or to commute the convicted killer's sentence.
