More signs of the capital times

In recent posts here and here, I have spotlighted signs that the American culture of the death penalty may be in the midst of a significant transformation.  Around the web and blogosphere, there are additional interesting signs of the capital times:

  • How Appealing here has links to two newspaper articles discussing the challenges facing Governor Schwarzenegger as he considers whether to grant clemency to California death row inmate Stanley "Tokie" Williams.

  • DPIC reports here on a speech in which "U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill recently announced that he is rethinking capital punishment because it is expensive, can be politically motivated, and risks innocent lives."

  • Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSBlog here discusses the latest developments in the capital trial of Zacarias Moussaoui.
