New Jersey Makes Nice

The Garden State lives up to the name.
Gov. Jon. S. Corzine signed into law Monday a measure that abolishes the death penalty, making New Jersey the first state in more than four decades to reject capital punishment.

And as Quaker Dave said, "We did it here. Who’s next?" Aside from being one of my favorite albums ever, it's a fine question if ever I heard one.

Thank you Governor Corzine. Hopefully, having been close to death is not a prerequisite for opposing this absurd--and unconstitutional--punishment.
