    Conveniently timed for a late afternoon Friday release, President Obama has granted eight pardons. Scanning down the list of felons, there's two convicted of marijuana related crimes, another who conspired to distribute methamphetamine, and one man who was "aiding and abetting the possession and sale of illegal American alligator hides" in 1986. Many of the crimes committed were over two decades old, and the most recent was from 2001.
    Lucky guys and gals, they've now been officially granted clemency. Time's Michael Scherer noted perhaps the most important tidbit from a first reading of the list: there are no violent crimes listed. With that little bit of business out of the way, the White House can officially start the weekend. The full list is here
