Yes, I keep harping on the fact that New Mexico didn't real end the death penalty, it just repealed it for anyone convicted of a murder after July 2009. There's still two guys on death row in New Mexico and several other defendants in ongoing murder trials are still "death-eligible."

For those of you who follow the death penalty just as closely, the

is hosting a must-see capital punishment event this weekend. Here are the details:
