Still more on the lethal injection scrummages

Tom Goldstein in this post over at SCOTUSblog does his very best to sort through the mess SCOTUS is making with the lethal injection scrummages (background here), although I am not convinced matters are quite as orderly as Tom makes it sound.  In addition, as evidenced by articles here and here, the media is starting to give broader coverage to some of the human realities behind the all the crazed litigation the Supreme Court has helped produce.

UPDATE:  Gina Holland now has this AP story covering all the action.  Kent Scheidegger, legal director of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, has the money quote: "Everybody's scratching their heads trying to figure out what's going on."
