      The president, for federal cases, and the governors, for state cases, have the power of clemency to deal with a situation where the system has gone awry.

      Representative bodies have no such specific powers. Their role is to establish general procedures applying to all.

      Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction. - Pascal
