Why a war on drugs and not a war on financial crime?

May 12th, 2018 Posted in Uncategorized

My op-ed about closing Riker’s Island is in the New York Daily News today! I’m so proud. It had to be significantly cut down, but the editor did a great job of that. I do have friends in the Department of Correction, and I hope they understand that they are not responsible for the problems of society that resulted in what Rikers has become. They are victims as well and closing Rikers is best for everyone. It hurts us all.

Spotted on the ground on my way to our choir concert last night. We are not alone!

    Stacy, that op-ed is a beautiful piece of writing. Well done.
    Rikers. All prisons. How horrific. You’re absolutely right–why do we keep repeating all these mistakes? Is it solely out of fear of the other? How can we start to address that?

    Hi Stacy — I hate to admit this, but I can’t figure out how to leave a glowing review on Amazon. There doesn’t seem to be any reader reviews up yet, and I an’t find the button to get into that screen. I’m a dolt. Can you advise?

    Ha. If you scroll down past “More about the author” and then past “Sponsored products related to this item” and then past the ad, you’ll see “Customer Reviews” and to the right of that you’ll see a yellow box that says “Write a customer review.”

    I thought there might not be a link to write one yet because it’s not the pub date yet, but it’s there.

    And thank you for asking!!!
