Wow, who would have thought it possible? Red-state Nebraska (with a few purple splotches) actually has repealed the death penalty by voting to override the Governor’s veto! And who were the people responsible for finally pushing this through? A strong coalition of abolitionists, plus some unlikely suspects, that’s who.
Progress, to be sure... but I am awaiting a ban on the death penalty constituted both by declared wars and a military-industrial complex BENT on making them.
