Last week, Norway became the first lending country to audit the loans it made to developing countries. The consultant firm Deloitte assessed whether past Norwegian loans to governments, including repressive regimes in Egypt and Indonesia, were compliant with current principles of responsible lending and borrowing developed by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

Public schools,” ALEC wrote in its 1985 Education Source Book, “meet all of the needs of all of the people without pleasing anyone.” A better system, the organization argued, would “foster educational freedom and quality” through various forms of privatization: vouchers, tax incentives for sending children to private schools and unregulated private charter schools. Today ALEC calls this “choice”—and vouchers “scholarships”—but it amounts to an ideological mission to defund and redesign public schools.

Your police report with 911 has been canceled
Years earlier: Previous call took precedence.
Two examples of 99 misconduct.
My close friend was expecting a call from Senior Law Center phone because he has limited free subsidized phone minutes available, but it was check day so I had to hang up Jamaican scam telemarketers several time a minute. The police came and did a report on me being harassed by several calls a minute and gave me a police report watching him take over the phone and talking to Jamaican crooks on both my phone and his cell, insisting “Give me the code”.
Back in January 1, 1995, I called 911 frantically asking why the police ambulance didn’t arrive. My landlord who wrote “A Cat Goes to Court” Kalvin Khan, not Calvin as some internet used book dealers claim was in inches from death if not already so. The dispatcher answered: “Another call came right before your call took precedence”. Until today I was only interested in pursuing belated murder not 911 misconduct.

George Zimmerman most of all in life wanted to be a cop, but the system worked so he never got to be one. Then he wanted to be a security guard, but the system worked and he was fired and wasn't hired elsewhere before he might have killed someone. Next he wanted to be a town watch captain, but the town watch system wasn't strong enough to tell him “No” before he killed someone.

Herman Wallace has been transferred out of solitary confinement, as Louisiana’s Hunt prison reduced his classification from maximum to medium security. Herman is now staying at the prison hospital in a 10-bunk dorm, with access to a day room, and does not have to wear leg irons anymore. While celebrating the more human conditions, Herman and the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3 emphasize that the transfer from solitary is not enough. They are asking folks to continue supporting Amnesty International’s call for humane release. The Angola 3’s Robert H. King, himself released in 2001 after 29 years in solitary confinement, says, “The wind is at our back and with your continued help our objective will be realized - freedom is in sight.”

At times there are things we feel we cannot talk about, and it can be for many reasons. Sometimes the pain or memory of events closely related to certain topics is just too raw, too sensitive to delve into. Sometimes we have not quite worked out the events and how best to deal with them. Perhaps the cause of the issue eludes us. Other times we just haven’t worked out a clear and coherent enough solution to feel we can speak, as of yet, without possibly just making matters worse. Perhaps it’s matters of political correctness that keep us from talking, and that too has its place and can serve to help sensitive areas be avoided and wounds more time to heal.
