My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?




Do you ever do something just totally random and then get a nice little karmic surprise for your efforts?

For instance:

Early this month I was waiting out a rainy day on the sofa watching some telly. I usually work outside on my front porch and feel stifled if I cant get out. So I grudgingly sat down to eat a sandwich (swamich, as my lovely 5 year old daughter says) and flip through channels. I came across The Amityville Horror, the old 1970's version.

It had been years since I'd seen that movie and I'd always loved it as a kid. As I ate my tomato swamich and watched the movie I suddenly remembered why Id loved it so. Staring at the screen I was reintroduced to my first whiff of puberty by boldly dark and curly Meeno Peluce, who plays the son of the doomed couple.

Rushing back into my head were vague memories (somewhat clouded by paisley polyester and Peter Brady) of a racing heartbeat each time Id catch him in an episode of Silver Spoons or The Incredible Hulk. I was sure my entire family knew what impure thoughts were racing through my head. My Meeno-daydreams included such filthy fantasies as him being transferred to my little Indiana Middle School to escape the pressures of fame and- spying me across a crowded cafeteria- rushed to my side. I could just see his black curls bouncing above the wide collar on his psychedelic, silky shirt. We'd share milk, gaze at each other over the slide projector and he'd walk me to gym while carrying my books and other such wanton junior high debauchery.

I had pictures of him all over my walls and kept a scrapbook each time I caught one of his television appearances.

Sigh... sadly I had to grow up and become an over worked writer eating a tomato sandwich on the sofa and I wondered..."What ever happened to Meeno?"

Wasn't hard to find and he does nothing so bourgeois as eating tomato sandwiches on the sofa watching 70's horror flicks. I googled him and found he has become a photographer and he has most obviously found his true calling. He has shot musicians and celebrities and a whole slew of exotic places but my favorites are of his home and family.

They are so amazingly real and present. Does that make sense?

I've become a reader of his blog and the photos make you feel like your there with him in his gorgeously restored belle of a mansion and his amazing wife and daughters. It's definitely worth a look.

Its so absorbing and entertaining. Like This Old House crossed with Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

I think Meeno and crew should have their own reality show. Id watch it.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
