Recaps of all the capital action

Fittingly, there was lots of death penalty action (including an execution in Texas and a stay in Indiana) to celebrate yesterday's  killer anniversary.  As I have highlightedbefore, I find that regular stops at three great death penalty blogs — Capital Defense Weekly and Ohio Death Penalty Information and StandDown Texas Project — is the best way to keep up with all the current capital happenings.  In addition, Crime & Consequences has lots of capital coverage from a perspective distinct from these other DP blogs.

For anyone eager for some historical reflections, I have some links here at my Death Penalty Course blog to a few discussions of America's history with capital punishment.  Also, I just noticed this extended article at Stateline.org covering lots of historical ground while providing a modern update on recent developments.
