    I'm going to the premier of this movie soon. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of it. The fire happened just a few block from my apartment here in the French Quarter. I walk over the memorial plaque on the sidewalk weekly but never paid that much attention to what it represented until now.

    I read about that a while back. Nice to see it's being documented now.

    Sad story in deed. Even sadder is that the main suspect is one of our own. Sadder still was the lack of support or caring by the community at large. No one was ever brought to justice for the crime.

    Whenever I pass that corner I always stop for a second at the plaque.

    i REMEMBER hearing about this and seeing it on the evening news. i was 14. the man in the window BURNED ALIVE as he was stuck between the window and sill. jesus. they could hear his screams as he dies. a very disturbing crime to say the least. and the right wing just keeps on laughing. what a pitiful excuse for some.

    Funny, I haven't heard any laughter over this from anyone, from whatever end of the political spectrum they hail from, or whatever their state of mind. Rather pitiful stretch to advance a political agenda, I'd say - and w/o a smile. icon_rolleyes.gif
