Good for him. Thompson is right, the guy paid his debt to society and his past convictions shouldn't really be an issue. Of course, our insipid press
are making an issue of Martin's past instead of taking this golden opportunity to pin Thompson down on his drug policy stance and to address the unequal treatment of well connected white guys and poor people of every color.
How depressing. But as long as we allow our media to be controlled by a handful of rich white Republicans we can expect no more than sensationalization over substance. It occurs to me we could solve a lot of problems if we focused some serious effort on breaking up the conglomerates.
