Melissa Rogers: "Today has been the most significant day in the history of the death penalty in America in many years." (Updated)
Don't get me wrong, any challenge to the death penalty is good in my book, but this appears to be just about the method of execution, and is not questioning the basic fairness or even morality of the system. We are the only Western Democracy to execute people. In my mind, this is just the first question we should be asking about this system.
