A letter submitted to the editor in the local paper:
I was reading the paper yesterday and I was outraged at what I read. And I'm not talking just about Kentucky governor's pre-emptive strikes against justice ("Fletcher Pardons Nine"). [For those not familiar with the story, Governor Fletcher has several cabinet members and croneys under investigation and indictment for breaking hiring laws.]
I was also outraged to read the story of an accused murderer who "kills because he is the leader of a gang and he feels it is his right," and who has told "lie after lie and fiction after fiction."
However, in the midst of all my anger, it did occur to me that the lawyer for this accused murderer and liar might have a great lead on how to defend his defendant. He should check and see if the accused is a republican (his "above the law" attitude suggests he might be).
If so, then he can simply get the governor to pardon him. Sure, it would be a travesty of justice and morality, but Fletcher has proven he's up to the task.
