Kansas Update

Well, apparently, the Kansas Supreme Court has put its ruling regarding the state's death penalty on hold so that the Kansas Attorney General can pursue an appeal to the United States Supreme Court. It is doubtful that the US Supreme Court will accept this case, but stranger things have happened. It does appear, however, that the Kansas legislature would like to fix the flaws in the law. Of course, I would rather see them decide to keep the death penalty out of Kansas, but I guess sometimes I need to be realistic. At least the legislature recognizes the problem and wants to fix it. For now at least that means no one in Kansas is likely to be executed.
