The usual suspects today, dear readers, The Daily Dose and The Thought for the Day.
The Daily Dose
It’s hardly even news anymore, really, the innocent being released from prison. It’s kind of like shootings in this country, there are so many of them you tend to become immune to feeling all that much.
That was our reaction when we read about a man being released from prison in Maryland after serving 13 years for a murder he didn’t commit. In today’s Daily Dose we talk about Lamar Johnson and how convicting the innocent is something we should all take an interest in because it really should not be happening in a nation conceived in liberty.
Also, the On This Date segment features Benedict Arnold, Babe Ruth and Dwight Eisenhower, plus there’s Trivia and a selection from the quotebook.
The Thought for the Day
John Wooden, the great UCLA basketball coach, talks getting ready and then, maybe, your time will come.
