From The Scotsman:

THE number of executions in the United States has fallen to a 14-year low of 37 this year as social concerns about the death penalty and its financial costs rise, the Death Penalty Information Centre said.

It is the third consecutive year of a fall in executions, and the number of death sentences handed down continues to decline.
