Supporters compete to promote campaign petition

A few updates on the nascent Pardon O. Henry! campaign:

First, many of you have not yet signed the Pardon O. Henry! petition. Please do it right now. Go ahead, we'll wait for you. ... Finished? Sure? Now, once you've signed, don't forget to forward the link to your friends and refer the link on Facebook and Twitter.

In fact, once you've signed the petition, go the Recruiting page where you can pick up a "personal tracking link," which you should use to promote the petition. If you do, you'll get credit on's Leader Board for everyone who joins the campaign via your link. Indulge your competitive spirit: See how many folks you can get signed up using your own social networks, email address book, etc.. Wagering encouraged, if short-story fans or philatelists do that sort of thing. (Grits mentioned before one purpose of this campaign is to set up web organizing infrastructure which can be used on other issues, and you're seeing it bit by bit.)

For the more old school among you, here's a flyer (pdf) that you can print out, copy and distribute at events, post on the bulletin board at the local library, school, or community center, or distribute any other way you see fit. Do what you can to get the word out.

Hussein Obamarx can't pardon O. Henry because Michelle is against candy bars and fat folk.
Also, the "criminal justice" system has been a political tool so long, we can't see the forest for the trees. That's why this land of liberty has the most people in jail. That's why they raise revenues with lies of predefined crimes like "moving violations."
Those most-corrupt vying for elections now are the richest or best-backed, like Hussein was. It's some kind of fascism, corporate government, mercenary and for sale, ready to sell out their neighbors.
And more diversions are created daily, to keep the masses from realizing it. Such a tiny oligarchy, so rich and so effective.
