On this Labor Day, we can be grateful if we are lucky enough to be employed.
I commend you to Bill Moyers. His column is reprinted on Truthout.org, a progressive online website. Are you a progressive like me? I most value human rights, a theme in our recent Compass magazine, where we profiled black Americans, gay Americans, suicidally depressed Americans, and incarcerated Americans, all under the rubric Know Your Neighbors.
A book review highly critical of psychiatry appears on this online website. Read it! It'll make you scratch your head in wonder.
Other holiday reading material includes an opinion piece in The Times by convicted murderer Kenneth E Hartman. Hartman's own website is here. What is this man doing in prison? Why do we lock up teenagers and keep them in cells until the day they die?
Use your empathic brain like I do. Imagine your brother is Kenneth Hartman. He won't be joining Scott and me at Lake Galena today for a boat ride or eating a delicious hot breakfast of oatmeal n maple syrup or sleeping on smooth yellow sheets with the door slightly ajar for a nice autumn breeze.
