Abstract:     
This Article will attempt to provide a “clue of thread” to state prisoners who wish to return alive from their venture into the habeas corpus corridor of the labyrinth of federalism. This labyrinth’s intricate passageways include the doctrines of procedural default and adequate and independent state grounds. The labyrinth of federalism houses the half-capital punishment and half-states rights creature born from a series of unfortunate circumstances typical of Greek tragedies. Like the minotaur, this creature demands human sacrifices.
