Hi Larry, hi All,

Geez Larry, although I agree with you that John Ford is a bit of
a "nutcase" (and that is based on having met him, spoken with him
on several occasions and after a lengthy review of what he was
offering as 'evidence.') but, the guy deserves a fair hearing
before he gets convicted in the court of public opinion.

Other than Als' humanitarian reminders I never hear anything
about this case anymore. How long has this guy been held without
trial? Aren't there guarantees in place to insure a speedy trial?
And purely as a 'soul' issue, you may want to ask yourself why
you are so quick to dismiss a fellow human being and relegate him
to the trash heap (worse yet, prison in this case!) because you
'disagree' with him or with his claims.

Yoofology aside, as an American I want to know why this guy has
been languishing in prison for so long, without the benefit of
speedy justice. Think about it Larry. If this guy is found
innocent he has already served almost three years! If it was
_you_ in there I'm sure the worse thing that could happen to you
would be to find yourself forgotten by your peers. We owe it to
John and to ourselves to back the guy (as if he was innocent)
until his guilt or lack of it is determined by a jury of his
peers.

I don't agree with him either Larry. And I even agree that John
_is_ a bit of a "nutcase" but wrong is wrong man. You should be
angered by the way John is being dealt with whether you agree
with him or not. I thought your comment was mean-spirited and
beneath you.

Al, thanx for playing 'public conscience' if it wasn't for your
noble intentions a _grave_injustice_ may go completely
unnoticed.

There but for the Grace of God go you or I.

Just my tuppence,

John Velez
