Death penalty follow-up

A couple of days ago, I noted that Tom Reynolds (R-Sadism) wants to bring back state-sponsored killing here in Wisconsin. This is a bad idea, of course, and Wisconsin has known this since 1853. Reynolds wants to undo 152 years of history to push the reactionary-right's theocratic agenda. Ben at Badger Blues reminds us of Wisconsin's one and only execution, in 1851, and the uproar it caused.

Let us hope that Wisconsin lawmakers are smart enough not to turn the clock back 150 years.
