Ira Einhorn has a blog, through friend
By Michael Klein, Philadelphia Inquirer
The Unicorn is blogging.
Ira Einhorn lacks Internet access at the State Correctional Institution at Houtzdale, where he's serving a life sentence for the 1977 slaying of his girlfriend Holly Maddux.
He has friends, and they're getting his thoughts on the Internet.
One piece - what he terms "a cursory enumeration of due process and other violations connected to my legal case" - was reposted recently on the free ad service Craigslist.
J. Nayer Hardin, an Arizona inventor and fellow environmentalist who believes that Einhorn did not get a fair legal shake, has set up iratheunicorn.blogspot.com to accommodate his jailhouse oeuvre.
Einhorn, who turned 66 yesterday, testified years ago that the CIA killed Maddux, put her body in a trunk in his apartment, and framed him. On the eve of his sentencing, he skipped off to Europe and lived on the lam for 16 years. He was brought back to the United States in 2001.
Einhorn's latest post is a review of Collapse by Jared Diamond (complete with a buy-it link from Amazon), a book that shows how societies destroy themselves.
Hardin, who met Einhorn through a mutual friend, says Einhorn "meticulously writes out" his work and mails it to her. Hardin says she puts it online "as quickly as I can get it."
