    This reminds me of the internal debate occurring within the same-sex marriage movement a few years ago, when some feared a loss at the Supreme Court would lose the fight for generations.

    The basic question is this: Is the time ripe for death penalty foes to get a case before the court that could result in the abolition of the death penalty in the United States under the U.S. Constitution?

    Essentially, as was the came for same-sex marriage, everyone is trying to discern what Justice Kennedy would do. Certainly momentum is on the side of the abolitionists, with states doing away with it steadily, and others applying it very infrequently.

    We need to be killing more people, not less. Starting with people who put unwanted pickles on hamburgers.
