‘In the Belly of the Beast,’ Gallup-style

E-mail Print PDF
In 1981, Jack Henry Abbott wrote the acclaimed “In the Belly of the Beast,” a book of letters to famed novelist and journalist Norman Mailer about his experiences as what Abbott saw as a brutal and unjust prison system.

The book was an account of the 37-year-old Abbott’s life behind bars for more than two decades.

Regarding the upcoming District 3 County Commission election I have had a lot of interesting Q&A sessions with several people.

The question most people have on their mind is who does it really come down?   Most people think it is between David Dallago and Bill Lee.

With these two it comes down to people already know them City wide and already know whether or not the like them or not.

Like or not you have to give David Dallago the edge in experience over all the candidates – he ran the County for eight years – he knows the County government, he is a Civil Engineer and he is a smart guy.

With Lee – well – he is “Mr. Personality” and he has been County...

It’s tax day! What’s your stress level? If your taxes were turned in by February, congratulations, for the rest or us: “Keep calm and carry on.” April can be a nerve-wracking time of year. It’s also beautiful, the trees are blooming and birds are chirping. This is an exciting time. Spring is here. Madame G suggests renewing yourself and refreshing your mind. Consider studying something new and investing in yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You have  a strong constitution. You don’t let a little physical ailment get you down. Even if you eat a poorly cooked salmon in Afghanistan, you’ll bounce back, with only a few near misses to the John. In other words, you’re...
