Johnathan's Article (and Song)

Salon with a lengthy piece tonight by woman (now living in NYC but not using her real name)  who describes the final hours of an inmate named Johnathan on death row in Texas.  Good piece, and as some know, I've written two books against capital punishment, including this ebook.  But I was surprised she didn't mention that Steve Earle also witnessed that execution, at the request of Johnathan, has written about it in an essay--and wrote this song about it, titled "Over Yonder (Johnathan's Song)."
