Booker T. Washington said . . .

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."

Could he possibly have had premonitions about people such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?

Another arrest

This morning, I found and arrested Aaron Miller in Noblesville, IN. He was a very cooperative individual, and I felt a little bad about having to take him in. But, there was no help for it. I just checked the jail, and it seems that he was able to get back out, today, which is a good thing. I will try to contact him tomorrow.

The nice thing about it was that my dad was able to go with me. It was nice to have him along.

Arrest

I just got in from arresting another fugitive. I found her hiding under her bed. She was wanted for FTA, Conversion "A" misdemeanor. She's kind of 'unusual'. Her mail is stacked up in her mailbox from as far back as August, 2005. That would explain why she didn't get any letters from the bonding agent.

Ya know what sucks?

Having to cut your hair to try to please someone else. For years, I've had my hair well down below my shoulders. But, since I'm looking for other work, I had to cut it to conform to someone's idea of what hair should look like. I know it will grow back out, but it just sucks to have to do it in the first place.

Pierced ears

Jessica finally worked up the nerve to get her ears pierced, today. Pictures to follow.

Sunday lunch with Jessica

Jessica and I are sitting here at a Pizza Hut/Taco Bell combo eating a bite. If you have never tried a Crunchwrap from Taco Bell, you should.

Sometimes . . .

. . . life just gets you down and kicks you in the teeth. I've noticed that it's during the quiet times that I tend to get a bit of a depressed feeling. The chains of life start running through my mind. Things take so long to happen if you WANT them to happen, and barely any time at all if you don't want them to happen.

Prayer helps.

Music helps.

Cartoon Network helps.

But, nothing seems to 'fix' it.

A bit of blog format revision

I just figured out why I was getting large gaps in my blog between text and pictures (no thanks to blogger.com support, who NEVER returned my email requests). I was using table to place the pictures in an easy-to-view format, and that was what was causing the gaps. Soooo, from now on, you will see any pictures that I have here simply in non-tabled format.

Just passing time

I'm sitting here in the food court of Washington Square Mall, waiting for a call from the pharmacist. Shirley's doctor was supposed to have called in a prescription for her, but he hasn't, as of yet.
So, I wanderded down toward the food court, popped up the laptop to scan for wireless servers, and I found one. Actually, I found two, but one is unsecured. So, here I am, writing my blog about nothing much, from the food court at the mall. Technology can be so wonderful, sometimes.
