Last week Genarlow Wilson was released from a Georgia prison and the charges against him were dismissed. Wilson had spent two years in jail for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year old girl (see my post Sex, Lies and the American Way). The wheels of justice turn slowly, but at least in this case they did the job.
Part of the reason they did was the public outcry–the e-mails, letters and online petitions signed by people from around the country and the world. It’s a good day when I feel like we made a difference. Makes me want to keep those words, cards and letters coming.
