As some of you may know, I am working on editing Frog Gravy at the moment. Sometimes, I have difficulty locating my own posts in this site, because there are many, and lately, many are unrelated to incarceration, so believe it or not, I have to google to search for some of my own Frog Gravy writings.
If you are new, or if you are interested in reading about incarceration, here is a list of a few posts you may find interesting.
Before I begin, I would like to show you the GoodReads statement I made regarding Three Cups of Tea. My GoodReads list is in the lower left part of this site:
This book is controversial because investigations have greatly questioned its truthfulness. In fact, the author has been ordered to pay back some charities, due to accusations of misappropriation of funds and misrepresentations of activities.
The book remains on the list, and it is unrated at this site currently.
From Frog Gravy:
The Hole, The Chair And The Holding Cell (this will likely be Chapter 1 in the final version).
Unrelated to Frog Gravy:
At this point, I would like to ask readers what, if anything, you would like to see more of. My site stats indicate that people are interested in incarceration, but also, in topics related to living in poverty. If you have specific requests, please do not be shy about asking. For example, if you once read a Frog Gravy and would like to see it again, but cannot find it, I will try to help with that.
As I said, I am posting this, because the story, Frog Gravy, is sort of lost in this site and takes some searching and back-surfing to find.
Just a brief note on the legal case: It is headed to the United States Supreme Court as a Petition for Certiorari. The United States Supreme Court rarely grants these petitions, and the issues are very specific. Of course, we believe the constitutional issues in this case [insert litany here] are significant, or we would not disrespect or waste the Court’s time in filing the petition, but again, such petitions are rarely granted. I will speak about the next step in the legal case at the appropriate time.
