Wow this might actually be the only decision that Crist is making that I agree with.

It’s nice to know that Crist has his priorities straight, with thousands of families losing their homes and the Florida economy one of the worst in the nation.

Do it Charlie. It is the right thing to do and provides the right punctuation on your governorship.

Crist probably thought the exposure and lewd behavior was actually rather nice.

Perhaps Charlie can be a commentator on The Smoking Gun's "World's Dumbest" show, alongside such also-rans as Tood Bridges, Tonya Harding, and Leif Garrett..

With all the pressing state business that Plasticman has ignored the last 18 months while running for senator this is a top item on his agenda?

What is Plasticman’s motivation and why would he focus on dated minutia such as this?
Is there a payoff of some sort down the road?

Why would this social transgression warrant a gubernatorial pardon?

That's what Morrison wants you to think.

The Lizard King can come out of hiding once he gets the big pardon.

America has been waiting for this for a long, long time. It will do a lot to soothe old wounds, bring us together as a nation, etc.

I’m sure he’ll be relieved.

It’s been eating away at him ever since he passed into eternity.

Jim Morrison was a drunken waste....

Give me the Guess Who!!! They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic.

*That's what Morrison wants you to think.

The Lizard King can come out of hiding once he gets the big pardon.*

He's actually been working with Elvis at a Truck Stop in Kalamazoo since the late 1980’s.

They are going to make a spectacular comeback!

Artie Fufkin has already started planning the “Back From the Dead” Tour for May 2011 with a little help from Don Kirschner’s son Schlomo “Spiral” Kirschner.

Elvis has an album and a book that he has been writing over the last 12 years both with the same title ready to be released in December called “I did NOT Actually Leave the Building” and Morrison wrote a book with a ghostwriter called “Still Squirmin’ Like a Toad”

The other day there was a post here about the top 10 male vocalists. I voted Morrison at or near the top.

The key word in your comment is “waste.” A supremely gifted voice wasted mainly by his severe alcoholism.

He was wasted out of his mind when he exposed himself at the Florida concert. Why are politicians worrying about this 40 years later?
