And it's for a good cause. If you read the law blogs at all you have by now, no doubt, heard of Cory Maye. In as clear a case of racism and ugliness as you can find, he's being railroaded for having shot an intruder who kicked in his door in the middle of the night. Maye thought he was protecting himself and his 18 month old child. Unfortunately for him, the guy he shot was the police chief's son. Who was white. Cory Maye is black, and is now on death row. There are more details here, here, and here.
So what can you do to help? And where does the competition come in? Battlepanda says
UPDATE: As both Glenn Reynolds and Mark Kleiman pointed out, this is such an unambiguous outrage that both the left and the right side of the blogisphere should stand united and work to make this man's story known. On second thought, to the heck with working together. Let's make this a competition. I am going to keep track of right and left wing blogs mentioning the Cory Maye to see which side is doing a better job. Mainly, I'll be using Technorati, but please send me links if you see that I've missed anyone.
So go thou and do likewise!
