The Dayton Daily News reports that Gov. Ted Strickland "hopes to make decisions on all 1,200 applications for clemency now piled on his desk" before he leaves office in January. Strickland says he has been "working through them" and spending "hours and hours and hours" in the process. He also says that he expects to rule on a "batch" of applications in a week or two. On the other hand, Strickland insists that he believes the process should be "handled carefully and deliberatively." See full story here.
