Down with the Death Penalty

Perhaps the world is not a lost cause after all. Perhaps people are finally coming to discover compassion for others or a higher understanding of the moral law. Or perhaps they've just recognized that the death penalty is an ineffective deterrent that is far from cost effective. In any case, this is good news.The fine legislators in New Jersey have voted to do away with the death penalty. Let us hope that other states follow suit.
