    mike,

    thanks for not erasing your show and starting over. thanks for recording a series of shows on what you felt was important.

    the whole story surrounding frances newton was horrible. just as i thought of her in the chamber, i thought of her kids as well. what did they do to deserve such a fate?

    in a world of on-going catastrophe, from 9/11 to iraq to katrina to the everyday injustices escaping all news accounts, people need a space to cry–to breakdown and be vulnerable. then rise again. your podcast here has been that very space that you chose to share with me. i almost felt like i was intruding in listening to it.

    frances is at rest now from the world’s madness. as dark as the death process had to be, considering her entire ordeal, I can’t help but think that she was ready to go.

    thanks sharing her story in the living years.

    Thank you again for everything. I don’t know what else to say at this moment… but there is a lot of sadness and anger… I shall leave it at that for the time being. Thanks again to you and madge for bringing Frances to my attention.
