Lethal injections resuming in Florida

Lethal injections resuming in Florida

Megan McArdle, over at Asymmetrical Information blog at the Atlantic, has a fantastic new piece on Florida’s governor and his quest to restart lethal injection:

I heard something that sounded very odd on the radio yesterday: news that Florida’s governor had expressed his “gratitude” that lethal injection was once again legal, and his intention of getting a death warrant out there as quickly as possible.

I oppose the death penalty, for somewhat idiosyncratic reasons. Some of those reasons are well captured by the passage in The Plague where Tarrou talks about his father.

Megan’s piece is a reflection is on a NPR “All Things Considered” piece entitled “Opponents Challenge Death Penalty in Florida.
