A number of notable capital punishment stories to start the week

I have seen so many notable new press stories about capital punishment issues, I concluded this round-up of headlines and links would be the only way to keep up:

From the AP, "Spiritual advisers offering final comfort in execution rooms"

From the AP, "Florida could end unanimous jury requirement for executions"

From the Kansas City Star, "‘Intolerable injustice’: Innocence Project calls for halt to Missouri man’s execution"

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "Shapiro must decide whether and how to keep Wolf's death penalty moratorium in place"

From the UPI, "Death row inmate's attorneys called sentence 'justifiable lynching' in 1999 hearing"

From WFLA, "Steven Lorenzo requests death penalty in double murder case"

From WIBW, "ACLU to try Kansas death penalty in multi-day Wichita hearing"

On the "justifiable lynching" case, seriously, is that an issue?
