Time for a timeout?

A recent poll found that while a large majority of Alabamians support the death penalty, 57 percent would back a moratorium until studies assure the state administers capital punishment fairly and reliably. Sen. Hank Sanders, D-Selma, has pushed for such a suspension for years, but those efforts haven't gained traction. This poll probably won't change much on that front.

Among other survey findings, according to The Birmingham News: 96 percent of respondents "support the use of DNA in cases where it might prove guilt or innocence."

You really have to wonder about the other 4 percent.
