Good reading

This past Friday we stopped by The Chancery in Albany for the fund-raiser for the documentary film "Question of Justice," which we posted here earlier this month. We got to talk with a number of interesting people, including Antonio Aversano, a Troy resident whose father was killed at the World Trade Center on September 11. He wrote at article opposing the death penalty in Sunday’s Times Union.
. . . I did not testify at this trial to determine the fate of one man. I expressed my voice and my heart because I believe in restorative justice and that killing someone to teach people that killing is wrong is a very poor lesson that even a child would recognize doesn't make sense.

The rest of the article is here.
