Believe me, I understand perfectly, Kermit. There are obviously many, many things in any ongoing appeal process that must remain private, and you are to be commended for doing so.

I can assure you that I don't read "true crime" books or regard the contents of same as anything more than lurid yellow journalism at best, cheap fiction at worst. Patricia Springer, who I believe wrote a book about Christa Pike, is one of the worst offenders in this area. I honestly wouldn't trust a word she writes apart from getting some of the names right and identifying the location correctly.

It sounds to me as you have far more insight here than any "true crime writer" ever could, and I very much appreciate your taking the time to write what you did. I send you and Ms. Pike every good wish.
