An open letter

This is powerful: Walter C. Long: An Open Letter to Richard Linklater on Our Texas Death Penalty.

There are Linklater films that I love, like the "Before" series, I found Boyhood[Wiki] stunning. I don't know if I could manage God Save Texas: Hometown Prison[Wiki], usually when I turn to the screen I'm looking for light escape, but it sounds like it's powerful. This essay sure is.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
