Sunday Papers 9-21-2014 — this is a bleak one, friends.

The Icelandic Police Dept. is on Instagram. You might want to follow them after reading this post to remember that the world can also be a happy place.

When I was still in school I was fascinated by prison writing and the dynamics of closed communities and total institutions and really dug Erving Goffmann‘s work. This article about prison gangs really reminded me of a lot of the stuff I read back then and if you’re familiar with the topic or not it’s an interesting article on the other end of the spectrum of shows like Lock Up and the like. Which are a guilty pleasure of mine, as well.

And quite frankly, as apparently celebrities are regarded as authorities on pretty much everything in this country, like the need for immunizations,for instance, a major culling of the herd might be just around the corner. And, while I mentioned before that I’m all for natural burials, I’m not sure if I’m 100% on board with the idea of turning humans into compost, but I guess extreme conditions demand extreme responses.

Whew, this is a bleak one! Prisons, disease, death, spanking…but sometimes that’s the way it is.
