Colin reads from his recent paper, published in the Arkansas Times of Little Rock, about Tom Murton and the Arkansas prison scandal of 1968. Murton was a prison reformer from California, who dug up three skeletons on the grounds of Cummins farm fifty years ago.

Murton's story, which became the basis for the film Brubaker, involved everyone from Dick Cavett to Johnny Cash.
