In Pulley, the court concluded, for reasons like those specified in Jackson and
Frierson, that the 1977 law met constitutional standards of narrow death eligibility
, individualized sentencing, and appellate oversight. Hence, the court held, the
statute was not invalid because it lacked provision for review of sentence
proportionality. (465 U.S. at pp. 51-53, 104 S.Ct. at pp. 880-81.) In Ramos, the
