California to execute Nobel Prize nominee

According to a story in the San Jose Mercury News:

Barring an unforeseen reprieve from a legal system that has turned away his every appeal, [Crips gang co-founder Stanley “Tookie”] Williams’ hope for survival depends on clemency from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The governor will have to weigh Williams’ death sentence for four 1979 murders against his well-publicized renunciation of gang life and his work against gang violence, which has earned him several Nobel Peace Prize nominations.
