18. MANY THANKS for all the K&Rs and the comments.

It breaks my heart to see what has happened, and been ALLOWED to happen to this good man.
I feel a special bond with Don because we were fraternity brothers at the University of Alabama.
Not at the same time, 10 years apart.

This guy's life is completely ruined, and just because he happened to be a Democratic super-star in a state that was rapidly going repug.

The federal prosecutor 'on his case' (in every sense of that phrase), Leura Canary, was the wife of the then head of the state repug party and a die hard repug herself.
The entire 'investigation', trial, and conviction still stink to high heaven.

Commutation would keep him out of jail.
Then what?
How will he earn a living in his 60s?
Disbarred, can't practice law.
Greeter at Walmart?


Again, many thanks for your comments. and recs.
