Pardon follow-up

Following up the report of President Bush issuing 14 more pardons on Wednesday, former US Pardon Attorney Margaret Colgate Love has written these thoughtful comments praising the President for returning "to regular and frequent pardoning that had characterized federal practice until the Clinton administration."   And, for a personal and poignant perspective on the pardons, this story from Georgia details that one of the recipients, who had been seeking a pardon for a decade, is in the last stages of Alzheimer's disease and may not fully understand that his name has been cleared 35 years after his last arrest.
