Hello, and welcome to the site.
Frog Gravy (online version) is a serialized true story, reconstructed from my notes. Names have been changed.
Frog Gravy depicts daily life during incarceration, in Kentucky, during 2008 and 2009.
Frog Gravy contains graphic language.
I am currently working with the manuscript for Frog Gravy. If you are looking for an essay, go to the tag list (tag cloud) at the left-hand side of any page, and click on the large tag “Frog Gravy.” You can also search the site using the search box.
I will be posting other articles as well, and am interested in topics concerning wrongful conviction, the plight or path of the incarcerated upon release, and myths and facts about the criminal justice system. I also enjoy humor, the arts, and just about anything related to science, nature, birds and the environment. I am also a huge, unapologetic soccer fan. I am married to Masoninblue, a writer, astrologer and former death penalty lawyer and law professor. I sometimes post his full-text articles at this site. His new web site is FrederickLeatherman.wordpress.com, and his essays present various legal issues in an entertaining, thorough and easy-to-read fashion.
I cross-post most often at Firedoglake.com. I also sometimes post at SmirkingChimp.com, and occasionally at Salon.com.
I am placing all recycle, scrapping and dumpster articles on this site now, and I only visit and maintain this site currently.

CraneStation is a name derived from my love of birds, and one of my favorite hobbies, which is folding Origami cranes. We have an African Grey parrot named Nikko.
