Bailout View From Prison

I think executives of banks who give themselves huge bonuses with stimulus-package money should forfeit their cash and their belongings and be prosecuted. It’s theft. It’s stealing. It’s mismanagement of taxpayer dollars. These people should be serving time. Why do people who make $20,000 to $90,000 per year pay more taxes than people who make, say, $250,000-plus per year? I’m confused and don’t understand.

I’m in prison for theft, business burglary, fleeing possession, etc.—basic dopefiend behavior. And I deserve to be locked up, no doubt.

Still, my path of destruction cost, at most, $50,000. I’ll bet a parole date that a desk and rug in one of these bank offices cost more than that—and maybe that desk and rug were bought with stimulus-package money.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
