Summer Doldrum Linky Fun
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in months:
Here’s your good deed link for the day: Troy Davis faces execution in Georgia for the murder of police officer Mark McPhail, but since the trial, seven of nine key witnesses have recanted or contradicted their testimony. Some have also signed affidavits stating that they were pressured by police into testifying against Davis. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles has granted a stay of execution while they investigate; because Davis’s appeals options have been exhausted, you should urge them to grant clemency.
And your serious essays: William Lobdell lost his faith after reporting on the religion beat. Christy at Dry Bones Dance responds with a meditation on Tammy Faye:
She never changed her makeup, she married two men who got sent to jail, preached forgiveness on The Surreal Life and talked about heaven on Larry King right before her death. What do you do with someone like that?
