Bring Back the Guillotine 

Though their reasons differ, both Conor Friedersdorf and Sonny Bunch want to see America bring back execution via the guillotine. I favor the outright abolition of the death penalty, and long time readers will know I’m an outspoken supporter of The Innocence Project. I think Friedersdorf’s plan just might get us there.

Update (May 6th, 2014): The second episode of John Oliver’s new show “Last Week Tonight” featured a fantastic summary of the death penalty.
