edit: for those of you that don't know Dennis Fritz was Ron Williamson's supposed accomplice in this murder, that obviously wasn't the case as neither was involved in the murder at all, nonetheless, he was sentenced to Life in Prison without parole. He contacted 'The Innocence Project' and Barry Scheck took his case. Now read the book.

Awesome awesome book. Another example on why the death penalty system is severely flawed. They almost put an innocent man to death because of a screwed up judicial system.
Playing for pizza was awesome as well. Have you read Grisham's new one, the Appeal? That is an awesome book as well. A fiction book, but it brings up the real danger of money skewing an election, in this case one for the Supreme Court of Mississippi.
Just started the Appeal yesterday, I'm not very far because it's my teacher's book, so I read it during class and then give it back at the end of the hour, but I've read enough for them to say the decision and for the rich guy to introduce his hot wife.
Reading 3 books at the moment, one with the kid, Hatchet (I'm sure a lot of you read the book as a kid), a book about teenagers that have gone into wars by lying about their age throughout history (can't think of the title right now), The Heart Of America, a good book about the core values of this country and what's made us great, compassion, opportunity, responsibility, equality, valor, ambition, liberty, unity, enterprise and spirituality. Good book.
