30 Years Ago Today

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."
