The Death Penalty: They got it wrong.
Today on the NY Times web site I read a short piece about the American Law Institute, a group which apparently was formed to support and gave intellectual credibility to the death penalty. Apparently, the group has decided the death penalty has been a failure and last fall they gave it up -- I suppose as a field of research and support. Theoretically, I guess you could say that's "interesting." In practice, it's devastating.
