Obama in Oklahoma

Just Mercy - Bryan Stevenson Dead Man Walking: The Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty That Sparked a National Debate - Helen Prejean

apparently, never before has a sitting American president visited a prison.  I get it, no votes.  But yesterday, Obama did.  I don't know if it had anything to do with these books or not.  But, Maybe.

 

And on a slightly different note, this is a call for someone with a better memory than me.  

 

In the last week or two, someone posted a review (but not, apparently, a Review -- because it doesn't show up on the Book Page) on Dead Man Walking, and someone else commented on the post to suggest another good book on the same topic.  The last two days have seen me searching every way I can think of to find that blogpost but no luck.

 

if anyone recalls the post, could you give a shout-out?  Thanks so much.
