HELP! This man will soon die.

As some of you may or may not know, I write to people on Death Row. Recently, I've been writing to Reginald Perkins, who is on Texas Death Row, and scheduled to die on January 22, 2009. Reginald is retarded, and was convicted on purely circumstantial (and not even good circumstantial)evidence. In fact, he is being convicted on the testimony of the person who probably committed the crime, himself. This is a travesty of justice.

Please, please sign the petition at the link below, asking the governor of Texas to spare Reginald Perkin's life:

Guess it's her latest pen pal
