Busy death chamber in Texas

As detailed in this AP article, Texas is on pace for a lot of executions in the next few week:

A dozen condemned inmates in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's so-called "death watch" cells are being executed at a scheduled rate of two a week over six weeks.

Two were executed the week of Oct. 13. Two were scheduled for this week. And two more the week after that. Then six more in November, adding to Texas' standing as the nation's most active death penalty state.

They stayed one yesterday. A bunch of these that have been set after Baze have been stayed or otherwise had the courts intervene before the deadline.

Texas is doing all it can to reduce its carbon footprint--one criminal at a time.
