I'd be interested to read more—anyone have any good links? Here's a rough (Google) translation of an Italian blog post about the execution of Kenneth Lee Boyd:
We admire and we love the United states for innnumerevoli things. But the capital punishment succeeds, to times, to make us to forget them all. ("Ammiriamo e amiamo gli Stati Uniti dâ€™America per innnumerevoli cose. Ma la pena di morte riesce, a volte, a farcele dimenticare tutte.")
Thanks, TarGator, for all of your excellent coverage of this issue.
