The availability of pen pals
has opened up more avenues of emotional feelings, and in order to experience the highs that each letter brings, it appears there are also some additional lows.
The analogy I used was that of a merry-go-round. In the past with getting mail from only a few consistent people, it was like being on one of the stationary horses on a merry-go-round. With the addition of the pen pals, I am still going around in circles, but now am riding on a horse that goes up and down.
Speaking of merry-go-rounds
, do they still have the Derby Racer
, that high speed one
at Rye Playland
Yes, regarding accidents, I was kidding about the suing. I realize there is no black and white answer to when to sue or not.
It is amazing the variety of ways people respond to traumatic experiences. I do not know if you have followed the turkey off the overpass case
in Suffolk County
. How the victim pushed
for the light punishment.
I also notice the two fatalities
that have occurred at Rye
. Again the issue comes up what do you have to do to insure someone's safety and when does it become a question of acceptable risk?
The post I have enclosed on the Camel ads is a good case in point. I was going to add how in the prison system while they are trying to limit smoking, it is still a very popular activity. The biggest seller on the commissary besides the ten cent (twenty cents at Club Fed) Ramen Noodles, a.k.a. crack-head soup, are the pouches of loose tobacco for around $.75.
According to one inmate you can get just over forty hand-rolled filterless cigarettes from one pack. Here I could have my cube vacuumed twice a day for one pouch of tobacco every two weeks. The stories of how matches and tobacco end up in areas where they are not allowed are amazing.
Yes I know I make typos and I catch some of them as I watch the final ribbon copy print out. Depending on the line of the printing and where the error is I can sometimes reinsert the page and fix the error.
By the way, I was wondering what would happen to the scanning if I highlighted any of the pages. I am thinking that perhaps I could use yellow to highlight errors that I did not catch in time and other colors for do not post sections. I will enclose an extra copy of one page with some highlighters to see if it can still be scanned.
It is certainly easier to catch someone else's errors. In my case I know I still allow my brain to see what should be thee and not what really is.
I think I will take another break and take a shower while I have the chance. I will be back to add yet more stuff and to finish proofing what I typed yesterday but did not send out.
