Congratulations to the Community Rights Campaign of the Labor/Community Strategy Center for playing a leading role in getting the Los Angeles school police to reform policy and stop criminalizing kids for being late to school!
Duc has an essay ("A Jackrabbit in the Prison Yard") in the new book, What's Nature Got to do with Me?: Staying Wildly Sane in a Mad World. Unfortunately, the publisher, Native West Press, isn't on the prison's list of approved vendors, so Duc cannot receive the book. I received a copy for each of us yesterday and I'm holding his for him till his release--someday. He won't get to see it with all the essays and poems and nature photographs and sketches till then. Last night I did photocopy the cover, table of contents, his essay and bio notes to send him. It made for a thick envelope. Fingers crossed that the prison authorities will let it through. (In the past I've had thick envelopes returned to me, considered prohibited material.)
