Ahead of the federal execution of Dustin Higgs — what will become the thirteenth since July, Justice Sotomayor notes, in a dissent, "The Federal Government will have executed more than three times as many people in the last six months than it had in the previous six decades."

He has been out of work since March, when he lost his job at a rental car franchise.
He has had trouble figuring out how to apply for benefits online.
"The last few months have been terrible," he told me. "You know, I'm about three months behind on rent... A couple of months on my car... Food has been hard to get. I'm trying to apply for SNAP, but you know how that goes. It's been pretty bad."
I asked Patton what he wants to say to lawmakers. (Unless they act, pandemic unemployment assistance will expire.)
