The Washington Post reports here that legislation has passed the House of Delegates that would expand the cases for which a convicted murder can receive the death penalty in Virginia. The article also describes legislation that would make it a crime in Virginia to force someone to have an abortion.

Speaking of which, I just got through reading Limitations by Scott Turow, about an appeals court judge receiving threats. Short and good, I read in a couple of hours.
