The days after Thanksgiving and before Christmas represent the busiest shopping season of the year. Its shopping insanity. People getting up at 3am, waiting in long lines, arguing over the last video game system or the new Elmo
even stampedes and real fist fights. It seems each year it gets a little bit more intense and the retailers always try to push the envelope a little bit more in their marketing efforts to get us to spend more.
Some of us reading this have visited someone behind bars before. Some of us may have even spent some time there ourselves. But all of us can at least somewhat imagine what it would be like as we’ve seen movies, TV shows, and even heard first hand descriptions about what it’s like on the inside. Getting locked up can be a badge of honor in the street. It’s often given props in hip-hop music and culture. But even still we all know it’s not good. It’s not a place we’d like to go for any amount of time. It’s ugly.
It seems this title and this article definitely stirred up some emotion in a lot of people. Some are sad to see it die, some are happy, and some even seem to be upset that were just talking about it. Well
why are we talking about it? Why it is a topic of discussion?
