The Bill Campbell: Misanthrope Show -- Episode 28: Troy Davis Blues

I was down at the Supreme Court holding a candle last week as "Justice" Clarence Thomas decided to let Georgia go ahead and murder Troy Davis. I've been trying to articulate my thoughts on the matter since but have failed so far. For now, this blues-oriented podcast will have to do. Please give it a listen. I think a lot of you will enjoy.
