The West Memphis Three

Posted By on Sun, Dec 16, 2007 at 7:53 AM

An energized publicity campaign that includes a New York publicist and major celebrity support (Natalie Maines will be in Little Rock this week) are now part of the machinery at work for the West Memphis Three, in addition to a high-powered legal team with new circumstantial evidence that argues against their guilt in the 1993 West Memphis killings of three children.

Brummett argues today that the Three, later rater than sooner, inevitably will be released. At a minimum, you'd think, sufficient evidence exists to prevent the execution of Damien Echols. This, I think, is where the publicity campaign is vitally important.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
