I remembered this fine older conversation from back in 1999, and sure
enough it gives a lovely backdrop to today. Perhaps somebody else will
enjoy re-reading it too.

Thanks, Gail...  I have been remembering that I did an Inkwell conversation
before, didn't realize how very long ago it was. (I myself won't be
rereading it, though a visit with an earlier self could be interesting at
some point... )

I hope Jane wasn't one of them.

I rather imagine that was supposed to go in the Occupy topic.

I used to think that it would be dishonorable to die without having
spent a night in jail for reasons of principle. I thus far have not
earned the status of honorable, I am very sorry to say.

Sounds almost like the seed of a poem that would resonate with a lot
of us.

just realized that i am a moron - had clearly not had enough coffee
that morning - glad the misplaced post sparked the seed of poetry
though
