Tonight: Nation's 1st Post De-facto Moratorium Execution

The nation's first execution since Sept 25, 2007 is scheduled for tonight in Georgia. According to the AP, "the Georgia Supreme Court on Tuesday denied William Earl Lynd's request for a stay of execution, paving the way for him to become the first inmate in the nation to face execution since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that lethal injection is constitutional."

The first execution in Texas is scheduled for June 3 when people will gather at the capitol in Austin to protest the resumption of executions.
