More than two years ago, a satirical paper down here in Texas printed a little April Fool's joke about me revoking the pardon of this Leadbelly fellow, a blues-singin' two-time murderer.
It was a joke and it was years ago. Why are you Mudcats so hung up on this? It's not like I could have executed a guy who's already been dead for 50 years. Hell, I never even heard of this Leadbelly fellow until the joke came out.
