    Janet changed her mind. Despite suffering chronic inhumane treatment at the hands of callous and inept staffers, she decided not to escape from the mental institution. Besides, she had it on good information from Barb that snickerdoodles would be served during the annual interviews. She took off the balaclava, smoothed out her nightie and went back to sleep.

    Later that morning, Janet watched with interest as Barb and thirteen other women were hauled away from the rec room. Her level of curiosity was dulled by her recently administered pharmaceutical cocktail; indeed, it could hardly merit a lazy question mark thought bubble. She merely thought, “More snickerdoodles for me.”

    During lunch, Janet informed her tablemates that the beef industry was going to merge with Big Oil. “Yep, biofuel is going to be huge. I bought 10,000 shares of _____, even though my broker thinks my TA is flawed. If you want to get rich, I insist that you get some shares!”

    After dinner, as Janet munched on snickerdoodles, she watched the nightly news. When she noticed that _____ had closed 17% higher than yesterday, she flipped open her phone, punched “BR” and dialed the number.

    “Dump it, Victor. Dump it all.”

  2. With great effort, Humpty Dumpty scrambled up the brick wall and plopped down to view his taunters. The institution of learning proved to be a place of inhumane tortures from the other kids. To his merit , he never let their name calling cause him to crack under pressure. They teased of merging his insides into the perfect omelette. He’d been tipped over easy and they watched with keen interest as he rolled down the hallway. When teachers gathered information about the incident they informed the parents of the accused offenders, who in their interviews with the principal merely insisted they were allergic and feared a breakout. That really poached his insides! Humpty fumed and boiled, the anger making his insides hard and bitter. All the King’s Horses and All the King’s Men gathered around waiting….more like horse’s fannies…. he thought. They served no industry except the king. So was the king behind all of this?

    “Jump, jump, jump,” they yelled.

    Rage seized Humpty and he indeed jumped. But he didn’t splatter before them as they’d hoped. He knocked them all down in a single bounce and found himself back on the wall. A little cracked and peeled but he’d survived, hard boiled!

    Mind-full Conversation … a continuing set of chats

    It is not cruel and unusual punishment to keep him locked away in that institution nor his sister-wife. I hate it when folks forget how inhumane the Orange Blob’s treatment of you was (and others).

    I love it how the cops call here the “Swife”.

    It is comical, isn’t it Lovie.


    So, momma….

    Yes, Lovie.

    After all those interviews she looked up to the sky … Did they get all the information they needed … to help the families of some of his first victims?

    No Lovie. It seems there is still some more interest in getting more out of him.

    So they think what he has told them has some merit?

    It seems so.

    Are there industry standards for how much they can get with this plea bargain?
    No, each plea bargain is written specific to the criminal.

    Will they keep you informed of progress?

    Yes, Lovie. After all, they would not have made the leaps and bounds in these cases if your murder had not provided them with the DNA. Plus, the facts are so similar they seem to merge into one big case. They keep me up to date, I insist on it. Heck, I email them on your birth date, your death date and now the death date of the two others.
