Surely as if the oracle of Mount Ida has said unto us ... the oracle that is at the clemency of the Eastern Prince, I know that in the end we shall meet.

Some signs of understanding are: clemency, knowledge, and silence. Silence is one of the doors to wisdom. It brings about love and is evidence for all good.

Say you're playing a role-playing game and you end up in one of the other player's dungeons. You could try begging him for clemency — compassion shown by people in power towards people who rebel or break the law.

Clemency is also a weather word, though nowadays it's much more common to hear people talk about "inclement weather" than, say, "the clemency of the storm." Derived from the Latin for "gentle", it came into usage in the 1550s. If you have trouble remembering its meaning, get rid of the "cle" and replace the "n" with an "r". You're left with "mercy", which more or less means the same thing.

President Bill Clinton was criticized for some of his pardons and acts of executive clemency. Pardoning or commuting sentences is a power granted by the U.S. Constitution to all sitting United States Presidents.

While most presidents grant pardons throughout their terms, Clinton chose to make most of them on January 20, 2001, his last day in office. This came to be known as Pardongate. While Clinton pardoned a large number (450) of people compared with his immediate predecessor Republican George H. W. Bush, who only pardoned 75, the number of people pardoned by Clinton was comparable to Republican Ronald Reagan and Democrat Jimmy Carter, who pardoned 406 and 566 respectively.

Federal prosecutor and Democrat Mary Jo White was appointed to investigate the pardons. She was later replaced by Republican James Comey, who found no wrongdoing on Clinton's part.

'No clemency for Chris Hani's convicted killer - Derby-Lewis?' I guess will find out tomorrow morning (eNCA) at ten o'clock (CAT). I do think CNN will broadcast it too.

Sadly within this very sick America, we do not give CLEMENCY to mentally incompetent individuals, particularly if they are black, if they have ended up on death row.
