Troy Davis.

It's impossible to find something cute and trivial to blog about when a possibly innocent man is being executed.

Illinois did it.  Georgia, it's your turn.  Please abolish the death penalty!

It is too late for Troy Davis, but let us learn from his story.  Studies show that not only does the death penalty not deter people from committing capital offenses, but also that innocent people have been murdered by our justice system.

One life does not equal another, and eye-for-an-eye is no way to live at all.  The world is watching and we should all be ashamed.

I was and am absolutely horrified by this story. I don't understand how this man could be put to death when 7 of 9 witnesses recanted their testimony. Heartbreaking and sickening.
