Thirty years ago today, Michael Guzman was given the death penalty as his punishment for the savage, cold blooded murder of Julie Ann Jackson. The sentence was undone 4 years later. But the jurys' courage that day is to be commended and should be remembered. That jury understood the outside pressures but did the right things anyway.
Today I obtained a photo of that day, of that moment, from the Albuquerque Journal. That photo is the final piece I was waiting for to complete my book. Tomorrow the book goes to the formatter and then hopefully the day after that it goes on line. Then a week or two after that it will be a real three dimentional book. Like Carly Simon said, "the anticipation is keeping me waiting."
