    putting things. Yes, the diary this morning was in no way making light of going to jail.

    It was written in advance of a group of Kossacks going to join a peaceful protest with the chance that they might be arrested.

    Maybe it was written to boost confidence before taking that chance, I don't know, but there wasn't anything lighthearted said by anyone who hadn't been in jail that I read.

    I have a real admiration for those who are willing to go to jail to express their beliefs. Maybe because I grew up in the 60's where guys went to jail for not wanting to go to war.

    I have been in many protests where we are briefed ahead of time on how to protect our bodies from attacks and how to get lawyers if we are arrested.

    That's a little different than serving time for a crime which again, some in the diary (and some of us who were not posting) had done.

    We could have a whole month of prison diaries here and never cover it all. Unfair arrests, unreasonable sentences, for profit prisons, aiy, yai, yai!

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
