  1. I tried to think of some other “civilized & developed” country that hosts Attica like events on a fairly regular time table and I came up empty. If you are an African American male in the US you stand a one in three chance of doing prison time. Attica; truly shameful and hardly a recommendation for our justice system. Here in Calif. we have people in solitary for as long as 30 plus years. Not always for what one might think. Just think; THIRTY YEARS ALL BY YOURSELF. Just looking forward to your daily bowl of gruel. This is not exaggeration. Don’t mean to be a downer, but the above really is one of our dark realities and it seems to transcend all sense of humanity.

    On the bright side. Winona Ryder was, and I hope still is, truly hot. I’ll bet she still looks just great. She could be the distraction that I am obviously in need of.
