Hi guys. Thanks for the AMA.

These questions are for both of you.

  1. How were you guys connected to the crimes even though you did not commit them?
  2. Have your experiences made you leery of the justice system or made you feel your cases were unjustly handled?
  3. What was the first thing you did when you got out of prison?
  4. How have people acted towards you when they discovered your innocence?

Robert: You said that the true perpetrator was in the court room when you were falsely identified. What was he doing there? How was he not connected to the crime he committed? Did you know him personally before the incident?

I have a friend who is a Criminal Defense Attorney, and we asked him the same question. He just responds by saying, "I try to make sure they don't get the death penalty for robbing a gas station." Is that similar to how you feel?

Thank you Rep. Ellison.

What's your stance on NASA's budget? I hear statistics that say every dollar invested in NASA is returned anywhere from 8-10 times back into our economy. Do you feel space is worth investing in? Or do you feel that we have problems closer to home that demand our money?

Wow, this is kind of weird. Just the other day, my wife and I were talking about what kind of business we would open if we didn't need the money (if we won the lottery or something). I said I would open up an aquarium store!

So anyway, here's my questions:

  1. What kind of income does your store bring in? (Sorry, I know money questions are kind of weird, but you said AMA. Feel free not to answer this, though).
  2. Do you breed your own fish? If so, how long did it take to find suitable mates before you opened?
  3. How big of a city do you live in? I know of a local fish shop in Cincinnati that does well, because it's the only LFS around. They serve the entire city of Cincy.
  4. Also, do you guys do special orders? I am having a hard time find just the right kind of fish that I want for my aquarium.

Thanks for this AMA!

Hey Ben, two questions.

When are you going to come out and admit that you really are Merton?

Also, any chance you and Ben Kweller are going to get together and do some more stuff?
