From The Update

FRIDAY FATALITY — A 75-year-old Weatherford woman late Friday afternoon was killed when she crashed her van in the yard of a Decatur residence on Farm Road 51 . . . . Justice of the Peace Terry Johnson pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

Why in the world does Texas still allow JPs to perform the very awkward "pronouncement of death"?
