Governor Perdue got some undeserved heat last month for suggesting  the General Assembly was out to turn North Carolina into Mississippi. A glance at today’s news and events, however, seems to confirm once again that she was on the money.
From the good folks at Think Progress : “Mississippi set to execute most inmates since 1950’s”
From Raleigh’s News & Observer: “Racial Justice Act changes again in committee .”
From today’s NC House calendar : Senate Bill 416:  A bill to amend death penalty procedures (i.e. a bill to repeal the Racial Justice Act and generally make executions easier to obtain and carry out in North Carolina).
