in my earlier post, I wrote that "Ledford becomes the 13th condemned inmate to
be put to death this year in the USA and the 1453rd overall since the nation
resumed executions on January 17, 1977. Only Texas (542), Oklahoma (112),
Virginia (112), Florida (92) and Missouri (88) have executed more inmates since
the death penalty was re-legalized on July 2, 1976."
CORRECTION---Ledford was the 11th condemned inmate to be put to death this
year, not the 13th....
