Blogging from Death Row: Vernan Evans

The first Death Row Blog has been set up in Maryland by Virginia Simmons on behalf of convicted killer Vernan Evans. Evans is set to be put to death during the week of February 6th by the state of Maryland.

The site excepts letters for Vernan to be answered that can be sent to meetvernan@gmail.com where they will be printed and mailed to the Supermax inmate.

One entry describes the Bloggistan debate around the Meet Vernan Blog, which appears to be an especially hot topic among women. In addition to posts by Talk Left and Fox News Contributer and Oberlin College graduate Michelle Malkin, local Remington blogger Liz (brother of slain Baltimorean Sam Richardson) has just sent a letter to be answered by Vernan.

Yes I sent that letter, but of course I didn't get an answer. I didn't really expect to. If you look at the site, it is full of letters with people telling Vernon either how sorry they are for him or sending only prayers and warm wishes. While my letter wasn't the happiest, I did reasonable ask from his opinion how should the victims family feel, more or less and gave my opinion.

But again, I didn't expect an answer
