998, 999, ...

Last night, as detailed in this AP report, Arkansas executed Eric Nance; this morning, as detailed in this AP report, Ohio executed John Hicks.  These executions mark the 998th and 999th executions in the modern death penalty era.  This AP story and this Reuters story in turn highlight that all eyes now turn to Virginia, where Governor Mark Warner is still considering whether to grant clemency to Robin Lovitt, who will tomorrow become the 1000th person executed if Gov. Warner does not step in.
