My Dad the ex-con just left town after a 6 day visit. He is the "survivor" of a 37 month bid in Federal Prison. It was really a glorified country club, albeit with a good portion of the members in green drab jumpsuits. He got out in 2005, and visits me and my beautiful family here in Albuquerque once or twice a year. It has been increasingly challenging in recent years.

We cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another -- until we speak quietly enough so that our words can be heard as well as our voices. For its part, government will…Continue
