Don't EVER talk to the police

Sorry Collin

From Randy Cassingham's Blog:

"Some readers will be a bit puzzled why I would spread this message in my blog: "Do not, under any circumstances, be interviewed by the police without advice from a lawyer." You have a right to remain silent, and I urge you to exercise that right. Especially if you are innocent.

Yes, this pertains to U.S. citizens, and not everyone in other countries have this right. How sad for them! But "Taking the Fifth [Amendment]" isn't something to be ashamed of: it's a cherished important part of our Bill of Rights."

Watch James Duane, a professor at the Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Va.

Judy Lightfoot, formerly a teacher and the Founding Head of Eastside Prep in Kirkland, is a Seattle writer.

Thousands of people in my city who are ambulatory, articulate, and otherwise capable of a social life are isolated from mainstream society, just because they have a mental illness or are homeless. Long-term isolation will damage anyone's sense of balance and integrity, and public services can’t satisfy the human need for personal connection's.

So I choose one individual to meet with every week for one hour of coffee and conversation at a cafe. I also enjoy irregularly scheduled coffee hours with people I meet who live in tent cities.

I don't need specialized knowledge about mental illness or homelessness, or about available resources, because my job isn't to solve someone’s problems. It's just to sit and listen and talk over coffee for an hour. Over time, this interested attention can add up to a transforming gift. And the atmosphere of the public spaces we share would brighten if millions of us contributed one coffee hour per week in this way.

Stadium Dickens Festival Dec. 13th

"Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Be it decreed that all lords, ladies and children shall come and celebrate the 4th Annual Dickens Festival at Stadium, a holiday festival, where Bobbies, Beefeaters and the Queen herself will be on hand to recreate the Victorian London of Charles Dickens.

Characters from Dickens novels walk the street. Food and entertainment fill the area with sights and smells that take you back to another era.

The festival is named after Charles Dickens whose concern for the poor is reflected in novels about their plight. His holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, is loved by many. In keeping with the mission, the festival plans to raise money for the " New Phoebe House", a residential home with a capacity of 16 adults and 10 children of pre-school ages. Residents learn skills to enhance their parenting, independent living, and employment skills. The festival also supports historic restoration and recognition of historic sites.

The festival is held over 10 blocks in the historic Stadium District Saturday, December 13th starting from 11:00am to 6:00pm."
