That's real nice about Martin O'Malley raising close to $800,000 from various supporters who apparently think he could go from Maryland governor to president of the United States some day, maybe even in 2016 if Hillary Clinton decides to become a Re/Max agent. With Maryland in his rear-view mirror, O'Malley continues to travel about the country, helping various Democratic incumbents who face battles in the upcoming midterm elections. That's So'Malley - selfless and always looking out for those who struggle.

Those who believe juveniles get away with murder - or that the criminal justice system generally takes too soft an approach toward young men who commit violent crimes - will be pleased to know that Mark Farley Grant has been in prison for 25 1/2 years. He was arrested for murder when he was 14, tried and convicted when he was about to turn 15. A Baltimore judge sentenced Mr. Grant to life in prison. He's 41 years old now, a resident of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services since 1984.

His friends, relatives and fellow inmates have been calling Mark Farley Grant by his middle name for years. When he wrote to me last month from Hagerstown, he signed off that way. Monday morning, when I met him in the noisy visiting room of the old state prison there, I called him Farley, too. Farley Grant has been incarcerated since his arrest in January 1983. His mother used to visit him regularly, but she died a few years ago. His older brother died last year. A sister comes now and then, but she has been ill of late.

T hat's nice, Martin O'Malley wanting to promote offshore wind energy. And that's nice, the governor wanting to give a $3,000 tax credit to businesses that hire the unemployed. In tough economic times, and an election year, Maryland's governor demonstrates both progressive thinking on energy and empathy with people out of work. It would be nice if he threw a little of that Mark Farley Grant's way. Just to recap - because it has been five months and six days since I first told you about this - an investigation by the Innocence Project at the University of Maryland School of Law concluded that Mr. Grant, a 41-year-old prisoner serving a life sentence in Hagerstown, did not commit the murder for which he was convicted when he was 15. The students and professors involved in the Innocence Project took on Mr. Grant's case, which goes back to West Baltimore in January 1983 and the fatal shooting of a teenager named Michael Gough.

The man who nearly 30 years ago prosecuted Mark Farley Grant for murder in Baltimore says he never would have brought the case had he known then what he knows today - that a key state's witness had testified only after being threatened at gunpoint by relatives of the original suspect. Phillip G. Dantes, who served as an assistant city state's attorney in the 1980s, says that, in light of information he now has, he would have prosecuted the original suspect, Mark "Shane" White, who is now deceased, instead of Mr. Grant.
