Excellent Jon Carroll article on the death penalty today.

I agree with him. On all of it, pretty much. My only point of disagreement is that I do think it's important that the Williams case is getting public attention, because anything that gets people talking seriously about the death penalty is a good thing in my view. The more times we can implant the idea that there are grave problems with this form of punishment, the better.
