Remember Those in Need
by Scott Horton of Harper's

....So on this Christmas Day, my thoughts are with the Siegelman's
and the Teel's. But they stand as symbols of a new phenomenon:
political prisoners on American soil. My hope is that in the coming
year, Americans will wake up to the injustices practiced in their name.
Maybe we will again have a Department of Justice that places a value
on justice ahead of doing the political dirty work of its partisan
masters. Maybe we will again have judges who place their duty to the
Constitution and law ahead of their support of a political party.
Christmas is a day for peace and contemplation. But the New Year
will be a time for accountability for those who betray the public trust–
the message promised by the trumpet is simple. The truth shall be
known, and justice shall be done. Fiat justitia, ruat coelum.

Christmas Card from a Louisiana Prison








"Merry Christmas to all of you, with heartfelt gratitude for your
support. Please enjoy this meaningful holiday season and appreciate
your freedom, your homes and your loved ones. I look forward to
cherishing these precious gifts, more than ever, in the coming year.
With your continued hard work, I believe this Christmas will be my
only one within these walls. Despite the grim conditions here, I will
celebrate this special day by keeping my faith, and by maintaining
the hope that, with your help, we can move Congress to expand their
investigation and restore American justice - our once bright beacon
in the free world. I cannot thank you enough, or ask more
emphatically that you continue and intensify your extremely important
efforts. May the many blessings of this season bring joy to each of
you."
