They’ll Have BBQ at the Wrap Party Afterward

The State of Texas is poised for a milestone of recent history – its 300th execution since restoring the death penalty in 1982. The oddly-named convict, (Mr.) Delma Banks, is protesting his innocence and hoping for a reprieve from the U.S. Supreme Court, but I’m not betting on him getting it. Texas didn’t get to 300 by having their sentences overturned frequently.
