Jim made remarks what to a homosexual could have been interpreted as disparaging innuendos that could have been taken as "homophobic". "The only ones who rush the stage are guys". And, by today's definition, the euphemism for "guys" means "balls". And having balls rushing the stage toward Jim was akin to being bum-rushed by hippie "tea baggers". "Tea" for jive. And "Bagger" what Southerners called Northerners. And Jim was a Southerner. Jim, before le deluge, represtented to Conservatives "White God-fearin' American apple pie, baseball, hot dogs and hockey moms". The Doors were embraced like The Monkees, and Bugs Bunny.
Jim never made any 'homophobic' remarks, nor did he say anything that could be 'taken' as 'homophobic' by any sane person.
Are you saying that a 'homosexual' is so screwed up in the head that he is ready to accuse Jim of being 'anti-gay' simply because Jim tells you what the weather is like today in L.A.?
Jim made a factual statement. He did not make any judgment.
It would be the same as Jim saying that what 'gay' men do to each other
Did balls grow legs? If not, then how else could balls 'rush the stage'?

Leave it to the witch to try and make the story of Jim's pardon all about her.
This is the most self-less thing she has ever done. Cheers to her for redeeming herself.

I was just going to ask if an American 'pardon' was equivalent to a conviction being 'quashed' in an English court. I guess not.
A pardon is great news though, and we have Jim's word for it that he wanted those shameful charges off his record. I'm sure he'd accept the decision even if he pursued having the convictions expunged afterwards.
What it means is that the state can go on arresting Black people for 'personal drug use'
and do it completely unnoticed. What good is the pardon then?
A pardon can't change anything since God is the only one who can affect change.
