I'm wanting to talk about what is
in the news "CRT" I listen to AM-
Radio. Also NPR. We have 2-flat
screen TVs in the dayrooms, one
stays on ESPN, every now and then we
watch local news and at times world
news but as always, all day we're
on a in and out. We can go [illegible] to the
dayroom all around 7ish in the morning to
sit either at a table or on a bench

Is it true that the only reason you were caught and went to prison is that you went into a McDonalds restroom in Mississippi and a state trooper didn't think you were in the toilet long enough to actually use the toilet so he followed you to your car and called in your license plates and found out you were wanted for murder in Texas?
If that really happened then do you ever wonder what would have happened in your life if only you had taken longer to use the bathroom that day?
The little moments in life that can prove so critical and change the course of our lives forever.
