Death penalty around the blogosphere

There are too many death penalty stories these days for me to keep up.  Fortunately, TalkLeft has this post on Saddam Hussein's execution timeline, and the death penalty bloggers at ODPI and Capital Defense Weekly have not slowed down during the holiday season. 

Of particular note from ODPI is this item discussing an execution date set for a "volunteer" on Ohio's death row.  As detailed in posts here and here and here, death penalty administration is already chaotic in Ohio; an execution date for a "volunteer" will likely only complicate matters even more.

Adding to the confusion on the "volunteer" issue, the 9th Circuit today granted rehearing en banc in Comer v. Schriro, 463 F.3d 934 (9th Cir. 2006). The 2-1 panel decision granted relief on a shackling issue even though Comer had voluntarily waived further review.
