Way down in the “More Headlines” section of washingtonpost.com is a little line that reads: “Condemned Ga. inmate wants polygraph test.” Seriously, that’s it.

It was SO cool (although I admit scenes from Soul Surfer were flashing through my head as I waited for a shark to inevitably jump into our kayak and eat us.) Also, when were saying kissing goodnight in the car,...
