The Southwest gets its first cardinal

Recommended Posts

...most of the country's dozen cardinals are clustered on the east coast. The south-west has never had one though there has long been one in Los Angeles. On November 24th that will change. Pope Benedict has appointed Daniel DiNardo, archbishop of the Galveston-Houston archdiocese, one of 23 new recipients of a red hat. ...with 1.3m registered Catholics, the Galveston-Houston archdiocese is almost twice as populous as San Antonio's. And its Hispanic population amounts to almost 800,000 of the 2m people in Houston alone. Cardinal DiNardo will still be able to be vocal about the plight of illegal immigrants. And he will be able to chime in on other moral issues. Houston is the seat of Harris county, which sends more offenders to death row than any other in America.

That is a good thing for the Houston-Galveston area. But I don't understand why they felt the need to throw in that Harris County sends more offenders to death row than any other county in America.
