US to hold 1,000th execution this week

So who's the lucky contestant? Are there any parting gifts for the condemned? What a depressing headline.

The United States is scheduled this week to witness its 1,000th execution since the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, but even as it reaches this milestone opponents said capital punishment may be falling out of favor.

I'm not going to turn this post into a debate on capital punishment because I honestly think this is one of those arguments in which both sides have valid points. I'm just curious as to the morbid purposes for treating this milestone like the millionth customer at Disneyland.
