'Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization.' -- Eugene V. Debs

From the mailbag 

I was recently contacted by a new blog and a new site and have put up links to them on the left side bar.

The blog is Abolish the Death Penalty -- as far as I know, the only blog dedicated solely to this issue. Single issue political blogs seem difficult to pull off to me -- unless you're okay with infrequent updates -- but its tagline says that Abolish the Death Penalty plans to "tell the personal stories of crime victims and their loved ones, people on death row and their loved ones and those activists who are working toward abolition," which seems like a pretty good angle to me.

The site is Vote Your Conscience and is "dedicated to persuading ordinary people to use their votes to effect change."
