My new job is with the Capital Habeas Unit of
the Federal Defenders Office. So after being here
for seven months, my thoughts finally turn to
Joyce and the Death Penalty. The only mention
I remember in Ulysses is the one in Cyclops where
Bloom discusses the one area in which executions do
not serve as a deterrent: erections.

I don't believe that holds true when the method is
lethal injection.

I'll have to dig a little deeper to find Joyce's
personal view of capital punishment.
