Man who shot Wallace to be released

This Juris post describes the upcoming release of Arthur Bremer, who shot George Wallace during the 1972 campaign.

About 30 years before the coining of the phrase, "NASCAR dad," Hunter Thompson described the efficacy of George Wallace's campaigning at auto racing events in Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72.

The popularity of NASCAR has broadened quite a bit since then, while the appeal of politicians with the then-held views of Wallace has withered to naught.
