To be congratulated...

Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, is to be congratulated for signing his state's first measure to ban the death penalty into law on Wednesday. Way to go, Gov. Richardson; way to go New Mexico!

Here's hoping that every state in the union quickly follows suit. We are one of the few countries in the industrialized world that still sanctions state-assisted murder, and it must stop.
