A second man is expected to change his not guilty plea in an arson that destroyed a predominantly black church in Massachusetts hours after President Obama was elected.  Thomas Gleason goes to court tomorrow for a change-of-plea hearing before a federal judge.  He was supposed to go to trial on civil rights and other charges later this week.  Gleason is one of three white men charged with burning down the Macedonia Church of Christ on Nov. 5, 2008 the day after Barack Obama was elected. Last week, Benjamin Haskell got nine years after he pleaded guilty.
