Helpful review of some modern US capital punishment realities

Over at the Pew Research Center, John Gramlich has this effective new piece headlined "10 facts about the death penalty in the U.S." In fact, many of the "facts" discussed in this article are facts about polling regarding the death penalty in the U.S. (which makes sense given Pew's recent poll work on this topic). Nevertheless, the piece is well worth a read in full, and here are a few of the highlights I though most bloggy-notable: 1. Six-in-ten U.S. adults strongly or somewhat favor the death...

That argument is likely to continue, along with the Congressional battle to raise the federal minimum wage. Earlier this year, the effort to increase it from $7.2...

Texas had the nation’s second-worst economy at the start of 2021. I mention that stat — courtesy of the first quarter’s gross domestic product report — so we could collectively imagine that was California and how critics would crow about the state’s looming demise. To be honest, it’s also fun to toss a barb at the Lone Star State, a worthy competitor. For the record, California’s business output grew at a 6.3% annual rate in the year’s first three months — a mid-range performance as the state sl...
