Kansas death penalty statute upheld

AP story and nice links:

Supreme Court reveals fracture over death penalty
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court upheld a state death penalty law on Monday in a splintered ruling that revealed deep division among the justices over the fairness of capital punishment in America.
The 5-4 outcome was as much a debate about capital punishment as it was a ruling on a unique law in Kansas, which has just eight death row inmates and hasn't executed anyone in 40 years.
