Signing my "release" papers.
Well, it is 9:00 PM, and I just got done listening to two great hours of radio. Fresh Air had an interview with George Carlin. He has a new book titled When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops
George Carlin made a comment about his "list" of bad words and phrases, which he made into a pamphlet and T-shirt. He was saying how a lot of the words came from prisoners. They seem to have a lot of time on their hands.
I had to sign a couple of papers today dealing with my upcoming release, or should I say transfer. According to the Case Manager, I will not be moved early. At some point I could end up at the Regional Jail awaiting pickup by New York State.
I was told I would be held in the County Jail till I got picked up, but they would not keep me too long if they were not getting paid for me! Nice system!
I also got a real bad feeling that I might have made an assumption that is incorrect. One form I signed today shows the name "NY State Department of Corrections" as having the hold on me. I might just end up going straight into the NY State system. That sucks!
So I was sort of feeling down, and along came mail call and I got your Tuesday letter and five more books. As I was sitting here in my room, two inmates came looking for books. They each got three books!
I need to send you a list of all of my magazine subscriptions so that I can eventually reestablish my connections.
I did have my counselor call the commissary to see if I could get special permission to shop before Friday this week. I was told that I could buy a lock and a bar of soap now, and the rest on my shopping day on Friday.
Bummer, now a two-hour special on NPR, a political show about the young lives of Kerry and Bush. I think I will dive into a book. I might write a little more later.
