Linkblogging For 14/12/10

I’ve been too ill – and too disheartened by recent political events – to write much in the last couple of weeks. I *will* be doing the next part of Eschatology & Escapology tomorrow with luck, and I will restart my very delayed Doctor Who reviews on Saturday, but for now, some links.

The Skeptical Juror is a fantastic site which i’ve been meaning to link for ages – someone going through past case histories to find the 54 people who, statistically, will have been executed wrongly in Texas since 1976. It’s horrifying, but it’s also a magnificent work of scholarship.
