May 27, 2010
On March 23, 2010 the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments from both sides.
As I sat in the court room, I thought of Freddy and Mildred Kassab and the many court rooms they had been in during their quest to bring justice for the murders of their beloved daughter Colette, and two granddaughters, Kimberley and Kristen.
Bob Stevenson and I were there not only to hear what was presented, but to send a message to MacDonald and his few remaining supporters that we still stand strong and will continue the fight Freddy and Mildred started to keep him in prison for the rest of his life.

Kathryn MacDonald arranged a news interview after the hearing. As
always, it was about her husband being factually innocent and wrongfully
convicted. And as usual, she looked and sounded like she was ready to
blow a gasket. Picture taken by Christina Masewicz.
Jeffrey MacDonald, from the beginning has only been concerned about what has happened to him, and his rights, never about the rights of his family. He was never an advocate for them.
These are the three men who have spent so many years being the advocate
for Colette, Kimberley and Kristen.

On March 25, Brian marked his 35th year with the Department of Justice.
All of these years he has remained on the case in addition to his other duties.

I wish each and everyone of you a safe and Happy Memorial Day spent with those you love and who love you.
Thanksgiving Day is a day we give thanks for the things we have.
Memorial Day is a day we give thanks to the people who fought for what we have.
Please take a moment to pray for our troops to return home safe to to their loved ones.
