    In his last two months in office, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is considering a December surprise: a posthumous pardon for Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, for indecent exposure charges after an infamous 1969 Miami concert.

    In a phone interview with The Hill, Crist said “stay tuned” regarding the idea of a posthumous pardon for the singer who died in Paris in 1971.

    Crist said he won’t make the decision lightly, noting the many complexities surrounding the 41-year-old case. Numerous sound recordings from the show exist, for example, but Morrison’s defenders say none of the scores of photographs from the show prove the exposure charge.

    “We would have to look into all of that,” Crist said.

    I've just got to believe, that there is someone in a Florida jail who is serving a sentence that is way too long for the crime committed. That someone is actually innocent (yea, I know, they all are) or just got shafted by the system. Forget about that, lets pardon Jim. I have to admit, his music is classic.

    I know....it ruins such a stellar reputation, yanno?

    He was what he was - and a damn fine musician besides. I do think the whole "exposure" thing helped him more than it hurt him, however. And done in today's world no one would have batted an eye - they'd have grabbed their IPhones instead.

    Can anyone say "tweet," "Facebook," or "YouTube?"

    My guess is that many in the audience enjoyed seeing his "privates" if he did indeed expose them. Just as they would today!
