Not So Random Thought

Whenever strangers stop me from taking their pictures, I always assume it’s because they’re wanted so I covertly take their pictures anyway.

Everything changed, then changed again

I tried to log on to facebook to change my mood to glum. But, the site was down because they were upgrading.
My mood, now glummer, I remembered I had a blog.
And as I logged in, and posted about Joel Siegel, a fellow cancer, dying of cancer a week before his birthday, making me yet glummer still. I kept getting notifications of new comments. At first I thought they were spam, but no!

Somewhere, 3000 miles away, Gertie is brightening my day by commenting on pretty much all my posts from the past week.


So now my mood is officially: Not as glum.

I do so love these intertubes.

Not so random question

Joel Siegel is dead

Saturday, June 30th, 2007 by Dawn Summers

NEW YORK – Joel Siegel, a longtime movie critic for “Good Morning America” who was famous for his weekly, often humorous reviews, died Friday, ABC officials said. He was 63.

Siegel, who got his start at the network by working for New York affiliate WABC-TV, had battled colon cancer, the station said.

“Joel was an important part of ABC News and we will miss him,” ABC News President David Westin said in a statement. “He was a brilliant reviewer and a great reporter. But much more, he was our dear friend and colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joel’s family.”

His birthday would have been next Saturday.

Black inmates outlive free counterparts

Alternatively titled “Racial profiling: saving lives one black guy at a time”

State prison inmates, particularly blacks, are living longer on average than people on the outside, the government said Sunday.

Inmates in state prisons are dying at an average yearly rate of 250 per 100,000, according to the latest figures reported to the Justice Department by state prison officials. By comparison, the overall population of people between age 15 and 64 is dying at a rate of 308 a year.

For black inmates, the rate was 57 percent lower than among the overall black population – 206 versus 484. But white and Hispanic prisoners both had death rates slightly above their counterparts in the overall population.
