Doors’ Jim Morrison Pardoned for Indecent Exposure

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s Clemency Board has posthumously pardoned singer Jim Morrison of The Doors for his 40-year-old conviction on indecent exposure and profanity charges. Outgoing Gov. Charlie Crist requested the pardon Thursday. The Clemency Board unanimously granted it.

Crist expressed doubts that Morrison actually exposed himself during a rowdy March 1, 1969, concert in Miami’s Dinner Key Auditorium.

Jim Morrison liked to brag about his fast-lane lifestyle. “I’m gonna get my kicks before the whole s – – thouse goes up in flames,” he was fond of saying.

Turns out his body was the s – – thouse. And like an arsonist in leather pants, he burned it to the last cinder, a spectacle that nobody close to him enjoyed watching.
