Jim Morrison Gets His Pardon

Florida Governor Charlie Crist had to go through the Board of Executive Clemency to do it, but he finally got the pardon he was looking for: Jim Morrison is now officially off the hook for an indecent exposure conviction, which stemmed from an alleged flashing incident during a 1969 Miami concert. Crist was compelled to act because there was no evidence to suggest Morrison did in fact expose himself, and now bandmates and attendees say that, while he may have insinuated he would, he never actually did. This quote, from concertgoer Helene Davis, is fun: "We were watching and waiting because it was obvious that's where he was going with it. I just remembered thinking, 'Yes, it's going to happen! It's going happen! It's going to happen!' And it never did." [AP]
