Texas brightens my day yet again.

I don't think I've said this lately (but I know I have before) - whenever I get really depressed about the state of the law and the refusal to recognize or enforce people's rights in Virginia and the Fourth Circuit, I can always count on Texas to let me see that it could be worse.

Texas has been fighting to keep a 16+ year sentence in place
when it knows (1) the sentence is contrary to the law and (2) the convict has served, many times over, the two years to which he could have been legally sentenced.
