A Jeffersonian In East Texas

A Change Of Venue

Filed under: Uncategorized — ajeffersonian @ 2:04 am

I have been writing this blog under a different title, and a different blog address for a while, and wanted to make some changes including a change of address. This is where the whole thing landed. So here we are, on WordPress, with a new name.

I thought I would reprint some of the material from the old site here, so we can have a bit of continuity.

This is the story so far:

There are parts of our society that don’t have a very strong voice. For whatever the reason, it is true. One of these groups is made up of people who end up behind bars, losing jobs and families for things that really aren’t criminal, or for some minor criminal infraction like stealing a “Snickers” bar (the DA pointed out that it was a “king sized”) and ending up with a major prison sentence. Child support violators locked away, losing jobs, and rights, folks locked up for ticketable offenses, and spending insanely long times in cells with real criminals, awaiting hearings. And the truly insane part, is that the powers that be want to create a new human storage facility to house more of them!

Well, that is not  all this is about, but you get the idea.
