Oregon governor blocks executions for rest of term - CNN.com:


Wow, just wow.
I have so much respect for Oregon's Gov. He has stopped all executions during the remainder of his term saying

"It is time for Oregon to consider a different approach. I refuse to be a part of this compromised and inequitable system any longer; and I will not allow further executions while I am governor,"

This article from CNN details his decision.
