A couple of things to highlight...

...before we make our escape into the wilderness of West Virginia for a long holiday weekend:

1. The bloggers over at Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing have won an award for their blogging activities. You can read about it here.

2. The weather's warming up, so it's that time of year again when we start thinking about "Starvin' For Justice: The Annual Fast & Vigil to Abolish the Death Penalty" in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The event runs from June 29 to July 2. June 29 is the anniversary of Furman v. Georgia, the Supreme Court ruling that temporarily halted the death penalty in the U.S. in 1972, and July 2 is the anniversary of Gregg v. Georgia, the Supreme Court ruling that allowed executions to resume.

We'll be providing continuous (or near continuous coverage) of the activity here at Abolish the Death Penalty. Meanwhile, if you are interested in participating or just want more information, go here.
