I am at my new work site and thought that I might get this letter finished and in the mail tonight. I started typing and decided to trash those two pages and start again. The reason for the rewrite is I was trying to delve into some emotional issues and the slippery slope that is, well, let us just say that you should be thankful for the rewrite.
I have so many ideas for possible money making projects, but you must remember that I am currently working for $.60 per hour, so perhaps my expectations are a little on the low side.
One certain moneymaker is coming up with a product or service that you can get the U.S. government to pay for. Think Halliburton
. Seriously, I do seem to be good at finding ways to use technology for the common man. Think niche markets.
There was a story on NPR
about a guy
in California who has developed on economical book binding process
. The process took him forty years to develop, and instead of franchising the system, he wants everyone to have access to it. An inventor with a conscience. The story even mentioned a satellite-equipped truck in Africa downloading and printing books in remote areas.
From the "this really scares the prison staff" department comes this item: there appears to be a mutant staph
infection infecting some of the inmates. So today there was no work call and we are all supposed to scrub our cells down.
This has all the makings of a cluster fuck
I have still not heard anything from the Appeals Court in NY. I have asked them to give me permission to get the full Appeals Court to look at my case. I expect them to say no, but at this point, no news keeps the hope alive.
So I have started the final step on the road to seeing if I can get any relief from my pending NY State sentence. This step involves asking the Federal Courts to see if I did indeed receive ineffective assistance of counsel. That is a violation of my Federal constitutional rights. The actual issue of the double punishment is not something the Feds can rule on.
NY State has refused to rule on the issue, saying that since I pled guilty, they do not have to look at the issue. My point is, had my attorney raised the issue, the outcome would have been different. So, if the Feds rule that my lawyer was ineffective, I still need to have NY State then look at the double punishment issue.
Ice cubes in hell have a better chance of surviving.
From the "I know you are busy, but this might be important" department comes this great book: Brain Fitness: Anti-Aging Strategies for Achieving Super Mind Power
by Robert Goldman, M.D., D.O., and Ph.D. He has enough initials after his name to make one think that he might like school!
The book covers all aspects of brain development, including A.D.D., depression, sleep disorders, and old age afflictions such as senility and Alzheimer's. The book also covers the dangers of not properly dealing with stress. The book shows some very interesting links to proper brain function and food, and the intake of vitamins and minerals. I found it on Hamilton Booksellers
for under $5.00. I think it is an important read for those of us who make a living using brain power.
I do not want my brain to go on the fritz.
If one actually looked at my reading list, it covers everything from Sandra Brown, John Grisham, David Baldacci, Dale Brown, Michael Connelly, Patricia Cornwell, Catherine Coulter, Michael Crichton, Jeffery Deaver, Nelson DeMille, Janet Evanovich...
Well, the list goes on, but I am out of memory on the typewriter, so let me wrap this up and get it on its way to you.
