"OLE GOLLY, OLE GOLLY, OLE GOLLY": So I was re-reading Harriet the Spy, the way one does, and I came to the scene where Harriet awakens from a nightmare screaming the name of her nurse over and over. And yeah, I cried--sue me. (I overidentify with self-centered, half-observant, slightly crazy budding writeresses.)

MATTHEW 25:36 WATCH: ...One of the things that confirms me in my decision to keep doing this work is the reaction I get when I tell people about it. It's not that they react negatively; for the most part I find people are very supportive. Rather it's how quickly they tell me that they could never imagine doing it themselves.Prisoners may be one of the closest analogues in our society to the lepers of Jesus' time. As Jesus' contemporaries feared disease, we fear the social pathologies that … [Read more...]
