Free at Last!

I just got word that my brother Randy has been released from prison work release in Loxley, AL. I will be picking him up in Montgomery in the morning around 1:30 a.m.
I can't wait to see him!

The last time I saw him was in Jan. of this year when I attended a hearing in Clay Co. He has been in prison for four years for being an alcoholic. I am planning to involve him in my work in drug policy and prison reform. Goodness knows he has the credentials and those who have been kicked in the teeth make the best activists. He EOS'd today so there won't be any probation bullshit that could keep him from becoming an advocate.

Great news!

Putting Randy to work on some of your projects is a great idea. It’ll give him something productive to do to keep him busy. Seeing one’s work produce results can be very satisfying and a boost to self-esteem.
