Another fun story lost in the Mitchell Report tidal wave yesterday? The release of Michael Vick's letter to Judge Hudson attempting to get his sentence reduced. (PDF)
The letter is self-pitying, but, frankly, not without some justification. (Vick wouldn't be the first person to smoke weed because of a lack of affection from his father.) It also includes a character-witness letter from George Foreman and a news story about Vick helping out after Hurricane Katrina. None of this worked, of course.
It even mentions that Vick has "horses, parrots, fish tanks and lizards." It's more difficult to get those to fight.
