The Commmissar over at The Politburo Diktat tells us about California possibly expanding death row because there's too many residents. One Berkley law professor says "...it may function to give us exactly what we want, which is a death penalty without executions." That's not what I want. Bullet to the head.
The Education Wonks reveal that England's education system is just as idiotic as America's in regards to weapons. He tells us of a ban on pencil sharpeners in jolly ole Manchester. The wonks were also chosen as this weeks watchers council entry! Congrats!
