I would also note the number of executions is trending down even after the passage of the AEDPA. This year should (assuming no short date executions) be slightly lower than last year. I am guessing 62-63 total executions this year (depending on whether Bowling in Kentucky &/or Banks in PA get stays) down from 65 last year. Like in prior years, 85% of executions will be in the former slave holding states of the old South.
