Who I Am:
This blog-site is an experiential journey… Born in the Summer of ’42, I’ve lived extensively in Providence, RI; the South Bronx; Long Island; Nashville; and Detroit.
I served in the 101st Airborne; the Old South Civil Rights movement (including a yr on a chain-gang); antiwar, vet and socialist leadership; international journalism; criminal/civil investigations; and a Doctorate in Forensic Psych (PsyD).
As a pilot and bon vivant, my travels and (mis)adventures include the Carib; Central & South America; East Africa; Europe; and the Middle East.
From 1990-2013 I was in/under the custody of the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). I spent that time in a dozen institutions at every security and custody level, including being attached to the USAF as an animal trainer and the USN as a haz-mat officer.
There are no less than 15+ million felons in this nation, over 2.3 million of whom are currently incarcerated (27% of the federal prison population are aliens, mostly Hispanic). Another 5 million-or-so are under direct criminal justice supervision (for a current total of 7.3 million).
However, thru the criminalization of “immigrant” populations and others, one can easily add another another half-million-or-so at any given moment.
Given the direction of this nation into a full-fledged corporatist institution, much of the “free-world” population can be considered at least “minimum-security” inmates. (Most just don’t know it yet; they’re too busy being directed in attacking each other…)
I currently have over 416 well Indexed published articles at this site. I usually address a variety of items of topical interest using many of my own experiences, which I hope the readers will find engaging and interesting.
My interests are quite eclectic and I hope you agree… I welcome your joining me on this journey.
