You are Welcome, Jim Morrison.

Today Governor Charlie Crist led a successful effort to clear legendary frontman Jim Morrison (of The Doors) of indecent exposure here in Florida, posthumously, of course.  Morrison was born in Melbourne, FL and briefly attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, Crist’s alma mater. Gov. Crist – who took the unusual step of speaking on Morrison’s behalf during the hearing – said there remained doubts as to whether the singer exposed himself or not at a Miami concert back in 1969.

 

 

 

While the board’s vote to clear Morrison was unanimous, Attorney General Bill McCollum said he was “disturbed” by all the attention paid to a dead celebrity… we tend to agree.  It seems like there are better ways to be spending the government’s time! I mean, this guy died nearly 40 years ago!

While we love The Doors music, we’re NOT listing this as a Top 5 event.

On a side note, there was an avid Doors fan named Michael Zidanic in attendance for the hearing. “It’s a real relief for Doors fan all over the world,’’ said Zidanic. He later called the granting of the pardon a “historic moment” and a “moving experience.”  (Well, it’s still not going down as a Top 5 event!)
