Three Ideas that Could Transform the Criminal Justice System and Corrections

After a career in corrections, I feel the need to communicate the ideas that I have formulated over 40 some years. I have written a series of short essays on my blog "Essays from the Heart" which cover all the three ideas and the underlying foundation for them. The link is: http://essaysfromtheheart.blogspot.com/ To encourage you to use the link I'll throw out a teaser - the first idea: ConAnon - a voluntary ...more »

Understanding the Internet: The Information Society

Per a web search for Somali pirates: "Somali pirates don't wear eye patches, and instead of swords they have RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades). They use small, fast speedboats to get around and work in crews of 10 or so. Once they find a good target, they launch ...more »

Allow American Farmers to Grow Industrial Hemp

Industrial hemp varieties of Cannabis, also referred to as industrial hemp, fiber, or non-drug hemp, should not be confused with marijuana.

There's no need to have tens of issues (I stopped counting) about the darn birth certificate thing. It starts making this whole open government experiment suspect if we can't make it useful for everyone.

Gangs in prison, and elsewhere, have all sorts if tattoos showing which gang they're affiliated with. We should add a new intake procedure at all prisons that says if you have a tattoo for any gang anywhere on your skin then you'll get free tattoos from several other gangs added to your skin. This could cause a tattoo arms race, with prisoners trying to convert the new symbols into some other sort of picture (probably ...more »
