Connecticut has only carried out one execution in 51 years, in 2005. For all future cases the highest penalty will be life imprisonment without parole.
wow. Texas does like, what? 51 a year?

Remember that GOP-debate where Rick Perry got the biggest applause of the evening for having executed 230-something people? Good times.

IIRC, that was a big part of GWB's victory over Ann Richards (for Texas governor): He promised to make more executions happen.
