Graham and another man were freed from Louisiana's death row last week after their convictions for a double murder were dismissed for lack of credible evidence. In an interview published yesterday in the New York Times, Graham says he's trying not to be bitter about his 14 years in prison. He tells the New York Times he was afraid to leave his mother's house in Roanoke at first, because he feared people would think he belonged in jail. Graham hopes to go back to work as a roofer.

Much like the candidates, the group has some business sponsorship, but they still need $20,000 to pay for its trip.
Its members also performed in President Clinton's first parade.
