Monday Must-Read: No Winners Here Tonight

My final semester in college, I took a class about the death penalty in Ohio, the state where my college was located.

The class looked in-depth at several issues surrounding the death penalty, including its equal application across the state. Shortly after the class ended and I graduated, I read Andrew Welsh-Huggins’ book, No Winners Here Tonight.

Welsh-Huggins is a reporter for the Associated Press in Ohio and has covered several executions.

His book looks at the death penalty in Ohio, the history, the application, where things could be headed. As Goodreads puts it: “His analysis concludes that the current law, crafted by lawmakers to punish the worst of the state’s killers, doesn’t come close to its intended purpose and instead varies widely in its implementation.

Regardless of your own individual beliefs about the death penalty, this book is informative. The death penalty is one of those issues that will continue to be an issue as long as the death penalty exists.

This book could be really interesting for those of you who are interested in one of the hot-button political issues of our time.
