I don't often admire New Jersey, but...

...they've earned a high-five today. Buh-bye, death penalty.

Obviously, state Republicans are in a tizzy over this:

"Sparing the lives of brutal murderers only a week before Christmas will leave a hole in the hearts of surviving family members that will never heal."

Assembly Minority Leader Alex DeCroce


You're right, Alex; Christmas isn't a time for mercy. It's a time for death!

New Jersey had an effective enough appellate review process that nobody had gotten executed for decades in any case; still, this is good news.

WOW.

And this, my friends, is why organized religion freaks me out.
