    Good morning Gabriele! Please be assured, your comments are most welcome and I am more than happy to answer any questions I am able. Prisoners are able to purchase items, including clothing, via the commissary which is located within the prison. Dzhokhar, as other prisoners, has an account or fund for this purpose. Anyone can [...]

    Hello dear Jane24 I hope I’m not annoying too for you. You have wrote that prisoners are allowed wear civilian clothes inside the prison. But how can buy Dzhokhar clothes or other things? He has no job in the prison. We would like to send him some money, but we do not know how. Please, [...]

    Good morning wb.

    It was Marc Fucarile and you are correct.

    Your question regarding the “lunatic fringe” was relevant. This is an issue about which I am particularly sensitive. Absolutely no apology necessary.

    What is really happening in the Ukraine. ” “So far as I can see, all political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome… To appreciate [...]

    “I doubt it is a prominent issue in this case.”

    I disagree.

    And @ 67: What you say here regarding Whitehurst makes sense.

    Hello Gabriele! I am pleased to see you return to these threads. Your support is very much appreciated. It is normal for a prisoner to be allowed to change into civilian clothes for a court appearance, but to be required to wear prison clothes for transportation. Clothing such as orange jumpsuits are usually only worn [...]

    I understand that Marc Fucarile was it who mentioned “trickery” and that this was falsely associated to Karin, right? As you, I found her behavior decent and respectful.

    I understand also absolutely that you don’t want to elaborate on these individuals. I should have known that. Sorry for asking.

    You’re welcome juliania. In agreement with you on the general public’s loss of faith in the judicial system, which, imo, is both righteous and warranted. The continued failure of grand juries to function as they should and were originally intended to is an outrage.
    Thank you.

    “I’m about 95 percent sure it has to do with Silva…”

    With you on this, omz! Certainly one of the most interesting recent developments. (Hence the bold type.) Why did this go by so many? Guess they’re too busy talking about DT’s beard…

    Thanks wb and for the link also. I am in agreement with you that Elena Teyer did well, as did Karin Friedemann. It is unfortunate that one of Karin’s questions was misconstrued and I tend to believe that this was intentional, in order to detract from her very valid question, rather than being a simple [...]

    You’re welcome, knowlyn. To be honest, the accuracy of the courtroom sketches is not something to which I have devoted much thought, for the simple reason that I do not consider this to be of any importance. I jested with wb on pbsz’s last thread regarding one of these sketches but I am also aware [...]

    Just realized, og, that I have met this writer. We once had a brief conversation in which we discussed our respective reasons for following this case. As you, I do not perceive her to be a “PTB lackey.” That being said, as my comment @21, I am not impressed with her article in the “New [...]

    Humans are not confined to a narrow set of ecological niches. Even if environmental conditions changed drastically and large numbers of humans died, it’s likely that some humans, somewhere on the planet, will find a way to hold on. But eCHANomics, don’t be too quick to dismiss the possibility that AI will be developed over [...]

    This would him be good.
    have a nice weekend
