  Stabbing Victim.
I was able to speak to one of the inmates that live in the honor dorm. That is where the inmate got stabbed this past Monday.

It all started when two inmates disagreed as to who was supposed to use one of the weight benches. One inmate tossed off some items being used to reserve the bench, words were exchanged, gang threats came along and by the time the inmates got back to the dorm one of them ended up stabbing the other.

The victim is currently on life support. They have the stabber. It made one of the local TV news reports probably only because someone at the hospital made the call.

The honor dorm is mostly older inmates and has a waiting list to get into. You can not have had any "tickets" for six months prior to getting into the dorm. The only difference one has being in the honor dorm is an oven to bake in, and use of the Rec yard at all times.

The way the yard works is that on weekdays, half the units get to go in the afternoon and late evening one day, leaving the other half with just the early evening. This flops every other day. Being in the honor dorm you get to go at any time the Rec yard is called.

Big deal.

Well time to wrap this up. With the holiday this week, they moved up my commissary day. I need to make out my sheet tonight and pick up my goodies tomorrow instead of Tuesday. I will be cooking two dishes serving six people sometime Wednesday or Thursday.

We are having a special dinner this Tuesday night about 100 Catholic and Protestant inmates and twenty of the outside volunteers that led the bible studies during the year. We are having two entrees: sliced turkey and barbecued chicken. It is supposed to be a step up from our normal mess hall chow. We will see.

Why we voted for chicken and turkey is beyond me. The money for this meal is coming out of the donations collected at services. The funds have been sitting around for a couple years I think. So this will not happen again for a couple years.
