In response to the Tommy Lee Waldrip story, I tried to call Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles. All I got was “Birdy.” She didn’t know or care. Kept asking how to spell Waldrip and what was his first name. How many on death row have been commuted?

I didn’t know Keith Evans, but I did work with his father, Cleve. Cleve Evans was a good, honest, hardworking man. Of course, his actions speak louder than words.

Another lady at work, her husband was on the Grand Jury, heard a lot of things, gave him nightmares. And from what I’ve read, this was a well-thought, planned sadistic cold-blooded murder to torture Keith.

So here on one hand is and honest college student, store manager doing the right thing when he saw someone breaking the law. Here on the other hand, three hate-filled grown men — wow. What can I say?

Anyway, I was on jury duty last year. Very inconvenient and time consuming. So if the Georgia board is going to overturn verdict anyway, because they know better than the jury and Supreme Court, could you find out their address so I can go ahead and send them my jury summons?
