a note about some changes to the site

We have added execution dates to the left. Note that not all scheduled execution dates are shown, but rather what we believe are serious execution dates, that is dates where state and federal avenues for relief have been exhausted or the condemned has "volunteered" to be executed. The determination of "serious" dates relies heavily on the work of Dr. Rick Halperin, as well as press accounts and various private emails and other contacts. If you disagree with the inclusion or exclusion of a given execution date we would love to hear from you.

If you know of a source to track international execution dates we would love to know about that too as, to date, only American execution dates can be reliably tracked.

I don't see a problem with showing all the execution dates for each month, rather than important ones.
