In the news this morning, the State of Arkansas executed its fourth inmate in one week last evening; he died by lethal injection at 11:05 p.m. local time, the last of eight inmates originally scheduled to be put to death this month.  The frantic execution schedule in Arkansas was caused by the looming expiration of the state's supply of lethal injection drugs. The executions have drawn international outcry and have fueled the ongoing debate over the use of the death penalty.
