The tragedy of the Troy Davis story is a also philosophical one. We live in a society in which we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. There should be no situation where someone has to prove he or she is innocent. There should be only legal proceedings in which someone is or is not proven guilty. It is appalling to me that there are detainees held in Guantanamo who do not even have any charges filed against them and who might still be there indefinitely. This is a failure of our society to maintain on of its fundamental and founding principles. Please refer to the Amendments. On a much lighter note, why is there a "p" in "raspberry"? What makes them so raspy instead of razzy? Raspberries are my favorite food in all the world, you see, and when I found them on sale at the local grocery store a couple of nights ago and so late in the growing season, I had to indulge. Raspberries are one of the unsung joys of this world. Sweetness, I really am going to need that lift to get out of here. Things in here do not look so good... despite there being raspberries.
