    RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Beverly Perdue says she is "furious" over a Superior Court judge's ruling that two prison inmates sentenced to life in prison should be released.

    Judge Ripley Rand on Monday ruled in the cases of convicted murderers Alford Jones and Faye Brown, who were sentenced in the 1970s under an old law that defined a life sentence as 80 years. www.wral.com/news/local/story/6611093/

    That's strange-I think that an 80-year sentence should be called an 80-year sentence, and a life sentence should be until the end of your life.. Silly, I know.
    Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

    80 years pretty much is a lifetime. That being said - if you're in for "life" you need to serve your 80 years.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
