I would like to welcome Marshall "Eddie" Conway back to the real world, after being incarcerated for 44 years.

I laughed this morning after viewing on News 12 an arrest assisted by iCloud.
That's right - bullying killed noted actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In one of my past postings, I mentioned reading a book by Chez Pazienza called Dead Star Twilight. Chez goes through, in an interesting fashion, his story on dealing with hiding, fighting, and finally overcoming an addiction to heroin.

Let ask ourselves - just what has David Brooks done that he deserves any more than you and I?
Future generations will certainly have some questions regarding how this generation's children were brought up - and I can't blame them.
