Re: [BKARTS] [OT] Prison erases writing workshop files after inmate wins $25,000 PEN award



Who can be surprised?!  Due to the slow but obvious demise of the now mythical faculty of THINKING and the fantastic arising of the demiurge APATHY, maybe we actually deserve the government that we have.  As soon as the mother ship swings by I'm going to put in for a transfer to a more civilized planet.
