Stumbling Among the Stones

Please forgive me friends if I have overstayed my welcome concerning the recent death of my only brother. I must confess that I have yet to completely process the impact Jeff’s passing has had on me. Initially, I was so focused on Jeff’s widow, Loni, and her needs, getting all the arrangements taken care of, keeping track of the arrivals of friends and family members, and coping with the day-to-day concerns of my own family that I found myself suppressing my emotions as much as humanly possible for the sake of others.

I did not sleep well during the trip or our stay. And I had been experiencing moderate pain throughout the visit. Five days before I received the news of my brother’s death, I had injured my right leg while repairing a broken water line in my front yard. A visit to my doctor determined I had suffered a hamstring muscle strain, triggering sciatica. Standing, sitting, or lying down frequently generated a bolt of lightning down the back of my thigh into my foot, and caused me to wince and hobble. (more…)

Rehabilitating the Cream of the Crap or Living La Vida Loca? As Paco alluded to during the staged Pelican Bay Hunger Strike of 2013 and subsequent political fallout (http://tinyurl.com/pgncklh), there exists a subversive inmate-advocacy movement operating under the guise of exposing the deliberate mistreatment of a specific class of inmates within the California Department of Corrections (CDCR) prison system, namely high-level security-risk prisoners (aka: shot-callers.) For those readers who are unfamiliar with the term SHU, it stands for Secured Housing Unit and was designed for the purpose of removing and isolating specific highest-level inmate offenders

Group Think: Mob’s rule

OBS: On demonstrable cowardice Shocking as it is, a large and seemingly growing number of people in the U.S. think it is not only acceptable but righteous to riot and call for the execution of law enforcement officers.  Wearing a mask and fomenting death and destruction is, in these folk’s estimation, a noble and worthy endeavor.  How can this be? “Groupthink…occurs when a group makes faulty decisions because group pressures lead to a deterioration of “mental efficiency, reality testing, and moral judgment.” Groups affected by groupthink ignore alternatives and tend to take irrational actions that dehumanize other
