I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Cory Maye story getting some traction....

....at least in the blogosphere. About a third of MEJs's visits today are from search engine or Technorati searches for Cory Maye. In case you have been hiding in a cave for the last week The Agitator broke the story on December 7th and since then interest has continued to grow. The execution of Tookie Williams last night seems to have increased interest in the travesty of justice that put poor Cory Maye on death row. The story has united the right and left blogosphere in indignation. All is still quiet on the MSM front however. How long will that last? As Mark Kleiman says:
Are there any actual journalists left in the country, people willing to do some actual reporting rather than taking dictation from anonymous sources? Any politicians willing to take a stand before taking a poll? If not, all the blogging in the world isn't going to do Cory Maye any good.

The Agitator is still following this story so head over to this link to the home page for the latest.
