Interesting Links, 26 Mar 2010

Want to see what a convicted forger does to kill time while in prison?  Of course you do. It's pretty amazing.

Want to see the easy life of a housewife in 2000, as predicted by Popular Mechanics in 1954? Of course you do. It's pretty funny.

Want to make people confess? Want to resist confessing to a crime you didn't commit? Of course you do. It's pretty unsettling.

Meet Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner

I don't claim to know Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner. I have never met her. We have communicated only in a pair of very brief emails. I am, however, aware of her cogent and unfettered defense of her husband. I figure it appropriate, therefore, that you learn of her through her words.  First, I submit  for your consideration the biographical portion of a letter she sent to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.

My name is Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner, I am a 49-year old French national. I am a freelance production manager working for the film industry on feature films, commercials and documentaries. My work experience has given me the opportunity to work on numerous pictures for major studios in Hollywood over the past 21 years. I am the mother of a 22-year old daughter who is currently in Medical School in Paris, France.
