It's All A Matter Of Perspective ...

I often marvel than I escaped Detroit and am living now in tranquil Connecticut. Life was scary in the Motor City. I am happy to have outrun parts of my past,

But not everyone I know has been so lucky. I have friends who didn't make it. I have a friend or two doing serious time for one thing or another.

Someone I know doing life without possibility of parole sent me a long letter the other day. Here is how it ended: "Be careful out there. I continue to be thankful many days that I am in here where I don't have to deal with some of the goings on in the news."

I believe that the state is a necessary fiction and that failing to combat it is the first step toward tyranny.
