An effective (and telling) list of the "best blogs" discussing capital punishment

A criminal justice website has this effective and telling compilation of "The 50 Best Blogs Discussing Capital Punishment." I call the list effective because just about every blog I have ever tripped across in my capital punishment surfing gets linked (with a brief description). I call the list telling because only three of the linked blogs are listed as pro-death penalty, eight are listed as neutral (including this one), and 39 are anti-death penalty.

I clicked on a few random abolitionist blogs. None shows the good faith to disclose the dependency of the authors on government make work and the on the necessity to keep vicious predators alive to generate government sinecures. Their credibility is nil given their need to keep criminals alive for their living. In fairness, this failure to disclose is as common in non-lawyer as it is in lawyer run blogs.

Two things: First, I am not an abolitionist so you're counting at least some blogs as anti-death penalty which are not. Also, much more "telling" than the list itself is the fact that only nutty ol' SC agrees with you the list is "telling." What conclusions might we draw from that confluence of opinion?
