You know, back when Kennedy was smoking reefers in the White House, if you were a black man and you got taken in for marijuana, they came down on you so hard you’d wish you’d be caught killing another black.
Hassan Abdolrahman, from an interview in the book In The Rose Garden of the Martyrs


  1. I’ve read through In The Rose Garden of the Martyrs twice now. It’s a very interesting read. I’ll write about it shortly I think.

  2. I still don’t understand why crack cocaine – choice of the poorer addicts – carries a higher penalty than the high grade stuff (Hollywood).

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
