Presidential Pardons

| | Comments (0)
I am watching The Bronx is Burning, a miniseries on ESPN about the 1977 Yankees. It mixes historical references like the Son of Sam and the blackout with the story of the Yankees themselves.

Tonight's episode referenced the FALN bombings of August 3, 1977.

Which, of course, reminded me of the fact that Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 FALN members in 1999. At least they didn't commit perjury!
