Initially I was disgusted with the tale of Mike Danton and his murder-for-hire scheme. However, now that I know the full story it makes me proud to see him taking responsibility for his actions and using the experience to better himself.

The story of Danton's return to civility (I'm Glad I Went to Prison, Feb. 28) is testimony to all who have struggled with bad decisions, large or small. I was most impressed by what Danton really wants: to have a family and be a great dad. How could society not benefit from someone with that kind of a desire for his life?
I'm all for second chances and I truly believe that Danton deserves much applause for seemingly making the most of his. But I have to question how he can be considered a study in redemption when he flat-out refuses to admit to the purpose of his crime.

If Danton still has David Frost in his life, then it is obvious that despite going to jail and everything else he has been through over the last seven years, he still hasn't learned anything.
