US application of death penalty at 30–year low

Writing about web page http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,1351530,00.html

Apparently, the application of the death penalty in the US last year fell to 144 people in 25 states. Now, whilst this is still 144 people too many subjected to such an abhorant practice, it is, hopefully, a step in the right direction. Hopefully, this year, the number of people subjected to judicial murder will also fall, and so on, and so on, until this despicable practice falls into disuse and is consigned to the dustbin of History it has for too long evaded.
