'A state sponsored suicide'

Carrie says James Porter's execution earlier this month was a "state-sponsored suicide." He'd dropped all his appeals and asked to be executed. I think she's right.

Texas plans two more executions next week. Troy Kunkle is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday, January 25, while George Jones is scheduled to die on Thursday the 27th. Here's the whole grim schedule through March. The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty presently has e-action alerts regarding both these men's cases here.
