In a small, red-shuttered house in Prince George's County, a family is in mourning. Relatives of Chelliah Johnson -- a husband, father and brother who was killed Sunday evening in a hit-and-run in Laurel -- gathered yesterday to grieve the loss of their loved one and wonder that someone could be so reckless about human life. Police have no suspects in the incident, in which witnesses saw two cars racing along Route 198, one of which struck Johnson and sped away. "They took his life just to win a stupid race," James Johnson, 12, the victim's son, said yesterday as friends and extended family gathered at their Riverdale home to support the widow, Annamma Johnson, and her two sons.

At great political peril, George Ryan did the right thing. Not to canonize the man. After all, the then-governor of Illinois was later imprisoned on corruption charges. But that doesn't change the fact that, in 2000, stung that 13 inmates had been exonerated and freed from death row in the previous 23 years, Mr. Ryan committed an act of profound moral courage, imposing a moratorium on capital punishment. In 2003, in the waning days of his term, he one-upped himself, commuting every death sentence in his state.

Sue Nickerson remembers driving west across the Bay Bridge, steeling herself for another ceremony held to honor her son and the hundreds of other Maryland police officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
