Update Tuesday afternoon 2:38PM:
A blondesense reader from Austria chimes in on the comments (under a different thread):
"The local news in Graz, Austria was just on. Ahhnuld's home town and I've lived here over thirty years.Thank you Ren for the update.
The city went nuclear on his Williams decision. There is going to be a city council meeting where most likely they will revoke his name from the soccer stadium. It has been tried before, and one woman from the local green party even hired a crane and tried to the first time he made such a decision, but she got arrested. But this time it seems certain. They are plenty angry."
UPDATE TUESDAY MORNING:
Williams' Last Words
"YOU DOING THAT RIGHT?"
Williams, 51, died at 12:35 a.m. Officials at San Quentin State Prison seemed to have trouble injecting the lethal mixture into his muscular arm. As they struggled to find a vein, Williams looked up repeatedly and appeared frustrated, shaking his head at supporters and other witnesses.
"You doing that right?" it sounded as if he asked one of the men with a needle.
After he was declared dead, his supporters shouted in unison: "The state of California just killed an innocent man," as they walked out of the chamber.

Schwarzenegger Denies Clemency for Williams
Schwarzenegger said he was unconvinced that Williams had had a change of heart, and he was unswayed by pleas from Hollywood stars and capital punishment foes who said the inmate had made amends by writing children's books about the dangers of gangs.
"Is Williams' redemption complete and sincere, or is it just a hollow promise?" Schwarzenegger wrote less than 12 hours before the execution. "Without an apology and atonement for these senseless and brutal killings, there can be no redemption."
Well by all means then, Arnold. Kill the bastard because he doesn't meet your high standards of redemption. It's perfectly in keeping with your movie persona and what more could anyone expect from you? To act like a human? ha!
Pro-life country, my ass.
