Meet Vernon - the First Death Row Blogger
Blogging has arrived at death row. Meet Vernon is the first weblog written by a death row inmate.
Here's how it works, according to the sites creator, Virginia Simmons:
Vernon Lee Evans, is the next person to be executed on Maryland’s death row. You can write Vernon a question using the link at the top of the screen or by writing an email directly to MeetVernon@GMail.com . I will print out the emails and mail them to Vernon who is currently in a maximum security cell in Baltimore, Maryland. Vernon will mail me back his responses and I’ll post them here.
Vernon was supposed to be executed this month but very recently got a stay of execution. You can read about his case here, and sign a petition to save his life. Read Vernon's description of a typical day on death row.
Meet Vernon even has a blogroll, and TalkLeft is proud to be included on it. This is an experiment, but wouldn't it be great to see every death row inmate with a blog?
Update: More discussion about why death row inmates should have blogs.
