Death Penalty Song of the Day: Johnny Cash, Animated

As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA  (Dead Reckoning),  I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America. So far we've featured  Elvis Costello, Metallica, Springsteen, Led Zep, The Band, Billie Holiday, and more.  And now the first return visitor: It's Johnny Cash, of course, with "25 Minutes to Go" -- recorded live (where else?) at Folsom Prison.
