So much death penalty coverage...

The start of a new work week brings a lot of articles and commentaries focused on the death penalty.  Here is just an abridged list:

  • This op-ed from the Baltimore Sun, "Deciding to kill."

  • This piece from the Dallas Morning News, "Lethal injection challenges mount."

  • This commentary from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Death penalty, science and sense."

  • This commentary from the North Carolina News & Observer, "Death need not be kind."

  • This article from U.S. News & World Report, "Pulling Back From The Brink: Why are death sentences and executions dropping?"  (Companion piece: "A Long and Tortured History".)

  • This story from the AP, "Top judge calls death penalty 'dysfunctional'"

In addition, Karl Keys at Capital Defense Weekly has great coverage of a lot of additional death penalty cases, stories and developments.
