    Typically my friend Carl Larson reads my postings and calls to talk. Today he didn’t call. Carl passed away today. Carl, I wish that our lives were endless. It’s all too short. I will miss you

    • Gadfly says:

      I am sorry for your loss. Good friends are a rare commodity.

      Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend Dr. Krupp. Greg is right. Good friends are priceless.

      Oddly, John Aleman mentioned Carl the other day, wondering out loud how he was doing. We agreed he was undoubtedly still alive and kickin’ it with Eddie Ylst or we’d have heard about it. He was a great, funny guy!

      Anyone with information regarding the passing of, and services for, Carl Larson kindly post here or forward to me at

    Well said, Dr. Krupp! The crimes and body counts are not being officially tallied because it does not fit the realignment narrative. If, as our Dear Governor contends, AB109 is really working according to plan, then that premise should scare the hell out of every law-abiding citizen in California.

    The real purpose and the stated purpose of “realignment” are, and always have been, two completely different things. “Realignment” was touted as saving money and making the bureaucracy more responsive by moving the problem (recidivism) closer to levels where the response would be better. I also had the advantage of reducing prison population, though not of the number of person who needed to be in prison. IMHO the ACTUAL reason for the existence of “Realignment” was to move the problem-going-onto-disaster of a dysfunctional correctional system out of the state’s bailiwick and onto the mostly unsuspecting locals. This way the legislature (who passed the law) and the governor (who signed the proposal into law) can look out over the carnage with an Alfred E. Neuman “What, me worry?” grin on their faces because it is no longer their problem. In that respect realignment has worked just fine. From a public safety standpoint, not so much.
