An interlude for sex and death

I could continue to write non-stop about Cunningham and Claiborne and Rita after all of Monday's action (details here and here).  But, not wanting to forget about all the other significant sentencing action these days, here is a brief interlude for some sex and death:

Sex: Corey Young has lots of great stuff at Sex Crimes on a range of topics, including interest posts on developments in New Jersey and a controversy about whether Dakota Fanning's new edgy movie, Hounddog, might qualify as child pornography.  This latter topic is also smartly covered here by Ann Althouse (who has been in especially fine form lately).

Death:  As usual, Capital Defense Weekly and Ohio Death Penalty Information and StandDown Texas Project all have lots of coverage of lots of different capital developments.  Of particular note, as detailed here, Justice Scalia granted a stay to a Texas death row inmate due to be executed later this month.
