    The Difference Maker

    I’m smiling wide and bright right now just finished watching one of the best movies I’ve seen all year 42, starring Harrison Ford. The film is about baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson and, the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1942,  Branch Rickie.   At the time, Branch Rickie decided that it was time for a negro to play major league baseball, and he chose Jackie Robinson to be that negro. During their first meeting he explained to Jackie that he respected Jackie’s...READ MORE

    What’s sex got to do with it?

    It seems to me that the topic of gays and lesbians and their rights (“Freedom of Choice”) is at the forefront of today’s cultural and moral battle over what’s right, what’s wrong and what’s expectable to the mass majority of people who make up society. From my perspective it’s like moral, religious and ideological gangbanging. And the anti-gay rights activist/Big Worm is saying: “It’s the principality, Smokey!” (an excerpt from the...READ MORE

    My Appreciation

    I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to those of you who challenged the forces of distance and separation and found within yourselves an unequivocal strength, which allowed/rewarded me with your presence in my darkest hour.

The SMU is a...READ MORE

    The Jaws of Isolation

    Almost as if it will never end, my days here have grown stone still. The jaws of isolation biting into eternity. For one moment in time solitude is without motion, not even a sound. Alone I stand. I see nothing. These walls are dripping with sweat. The foul odor of human feces crowd my nostrils. I struggle to breathe. The absence of light is the only protection as the room spins. No bed. No linens. I crawl into a corner. Wrap myself in nothing. Body too fatigued to move any further. Punished,...READ MORE

    Five in the morning…

    Five o’clock in the morning- I sit shackled and black boxed in U.S.P. Big Sandy’s R&D (Receiving and Discharge). Not alone, amongst me sits an assortment of colors- black white and brown- all belonging to what we call on this side of freedom “CARS”. There’s no mystery to where we’re headed and though most won’t admit it, you can sense the fear. The fear that arrives every time BOP decides to enhance your frequent flier miles and drop you within another penitentiary. The...READ MORE
