Moving on from Tookie

PJMedia has a roundup of blog reaction to Tookie’s last day, but you won’t get much from me. I thought Williams was the exact wrong person around whom to base discussion of the death penalty. Glamour and celebrity turn a debate on a serious issue into a form of media pornography. In a situation like this, the maunderings of self-promoting narcissists like Mike Farrell turn opponents of the death penalty into supporters. Enough of this.
