Re: “Sonoma County Jail Abuse

My son has been in jail for 4 months with no charges against him. My son is mentally unstable and is on meds has been for years. He gets no costs and sometimes they let him out of his cell to call me. I'm on Probation so I have to get permission from my Probation officer to vist my son. I'm denied every time. I'm on Probation for possion of stolen property. I've been on Probation for over 3 years. I have just revived my 1st violation for misuse of my clients handy cap parking plac. I revived a 250 fine and 40hrs work. I would of been off Probation but I couldn't pay off the restitution so they extended my probation another two years.I agreed to that because the other choice was for me to go to jail for 3 years. So there my son sits I pray that when they decide to kill he they kill him quickly. I've already made peice with the fact that I will burry my son. There's nothing that can be done for my son. I just try to Rember our good time before he became ill. I'm glad to hear that were not the only ones.

Re: “Pesticide Use in Sonoma County

"PAN wants the create an easily accessible Internet database on the use of particular pesticides on particular pieces of land, so you'd know exactly what is being applied in your neighborhood."

Has this happened? If so, how can one access it?

Re: “Hate Crime


It is a violation of California State Law to insert anything into a "free" newspaper. I know because as a much younger angry white male I did it. One of the offending papers landed on the lawn of my state assemblywoman and, well the rest is history. The theory is those who do are stealing potential ad space from the newspaper publisher. I am not kidding.

It can be a misdemeanor or a felony depending how much space is taken. It is not illegal to buy a newspaper and redistribute it with a flier, but some groups who have done this have been cited for littering. It is not illegal to recover discarded papers from the trash but it is to take them from a recycle bin.

It was my first foray in to shaping public policy but not my last. I am still white and still angry but with age comes wisdom and the race war in my head ended long ago. These days I fight for the rights of working people against those who who might take unfair advantage.

Re: “Field Trippin'

Possible fiction? The opening line is taken damned nearly verbatim form Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. ("We were just past Barstow when the drugs began to take hold.")

Re: “Gay Travel

Don't neglect the colonial interior. My new book is not specifically about the gay lifestyle in Mexico, but in my travels talking to expats in out of the way places, I discovered a remarkable number of gays living satisfying lives in tolerant, but not well-known, communities. The book is called, Into the Heart of Mexico: Expatriates Find Themselves Off the Beaten Path. A sample is available on my website.

Re: “The Wrath of Grapes

Look outside your narrow minds. All of California has been suffering drought conditions since the winter of 1964-1965. Look at the water the stables at the beginning of mark west springs road pumps out of the creek. All of you that live within a few hundred feet are pulling water directly from the creek. Bigots

Re: “Voltage & Violets

Where's the rest of the article? Missing last 10 paragraphs, about 1/3 of the piece. Please add the rest, this article is important and still relevant. Thanks!

Re: “Field Trippin'

This was a great read,a potentially horrible situation that had a happy ending.It's nice to know every thing went great for you and that you gave the student who dosed you a second chance.Funny that he will be dosing people legally for a living now,but with drugs far more dangerous than LSD

Re: “Field Trippin'

This was so awesome I nearly had an anxiety attack as I was reading it. I haven't done acid since age 14, but I never forgot a single moment of it. I made gnarly pot brownies once though, and ended up comatose and similarly one-syllabled for about 5 hours sitting on the porch of my co-op in Berkeley, CA. Great read, and I'm glad you and Max worked it out!
