American presidents come in handy when I need a sense of the passage of time. As I sat last month in a bright room with barred windows at the state prison in Hagerstown to observe three parole hearings (TJI, May 19, 21, 23), someone would mention a date -- date of the crime, date of sentencing -- and I would attach presidents to each.When Claude Waddy went to prison for killing Stuart Hess, Gerald Ford was still in the White House. When a jury convicted William Joseph Parker in the murder of 13-year-old Elizabeth Archard, Jimmy Carter was still wearing cardigans in the Oval Office.
