Drug case was actually 34 years ago

You know that minor drug case from 1975 that federal authorities are still obsessed with? It turns out I was wrong. The first press reports I saw said it was from 1975, but actually it was from 1974.

So they're making a 53-year-old woman serve another 19 years in prison for something that 1) happened 34 years ago; 2) wasn't a violent offense anyway; and 3) involved the woman only minimally. For a country with a multitrillion-dollar debt, the authorities sure know how to, well, make it a multiquadrillion-dollar debt.

  1. Greetings Tim Brown fans!

    On behalf of the World's First Tim Brown Fan Site,, I'd like to thank everyone who participated in Tim Brown Awareness Month by telling friends and loved ones about the remarkable Bandit and the story of his rise from victim of school bullying to leader of the working class.

    Although Tim Brown Awareness Month has come to an end, we should all continue to tell the people we trust about Tim. We are on his side because he is on ours.
