  Nothing Newsworthy about Al Sharpton.
I am a little behind in my reading of the Times. I did receive the papers for Thursday and Friday on Monday. The label for Friday's paper still showed the old expiration date. I am not sure what that date means anymore.

I was just reading the Monday and Tuesday papers. The funk I am in seems to be slowing me down in all areas. I was not going to even type this letter to you, but now that I have started it, and as long as the typewriter behaves, I am feeling a little better. That is what friends are for.

I have sent two separate Hamilton orders to Mom and Dad, and hopefully they have been sent on and I will be receiving them soon. Also, I hope that Dad did manage to get word to the Columbia Law students about the proper address for that Jailhouse Lawyers Manual.

Do you remember reading about a Supreme Court ruling about prisoner lawsuits? They made it easier to file Section 1983 claims. This might help me in the long run if I am forced to deal with the parole board.

It is great to have the Times. I was reading the article about Dan Rather and that reporter who recently committed suicide. The article mentioned the lack of any real news these days.

That is something I have written about before, but I had to laugh when I read that the Times is starting a new column called "Ink." The first story was on Al Sharpton's weight loss plan. Gag me.

This man is not even newsworthy on a regular basis, except maybe to point out how he has not held a real job in how many years? Now he is also making "sidelines!"
