Apology to MW #298 (For April 10, 1999)

What's new with John Ford?  Is he closer to trial?  So, when's
he allowed to express his denial? What are his chances; does he
pretend (?) that freedom can happen for him, once again? Is he
despondent? Is he depressed? What does he miss as his freedom's
oppressed? Is he despairing? Is he tormented -- writhing and
chafing his unearned internment?  What does he think of while
buried in prison? How does he manage this hell of derision? How
does he govern the feelings he has for folks that betrayed him,
or treated him bad? What are his thoughts on the lack of concern
of his own damned community that's shunned him in turn? What are
his options? What's his prerogative? His _right_ to a TRIAL is a
sad interrogative!

Walking the _streets_ are those far worse than him! Released,
and at large, they are MONSTERS, my friend! But John is locked
up like a serial fiend, when, in TRUTH, he's done _nothing_ but
question and dream! He's scorned for his courage of strident
conviction! He's jailed for reasons concocted from fiction! He
lives a perdition of slow rot to please all the ones that make
out if he's brought to his knees!  He lives his debasement to
further the ends of the demons that profit from what _they_
pretend.  He's tied up and muffled to further the cause of
political ambitions that should give us _all_ pause.  Forgotten
and lonely he sits in his cell, thinking (quite rightly) he's
gone straight to hell.

What's the damn hold up? What was his crime? Who was it
_injured_ for John doing time? What are the reasons he's
suffered these years? Why don't they try him?

Isn't it _queer_?

How do they figure to hold him in jail, or NOT have a trial, and
NOT hear his tale?  What of John's lawyer? What was his take?
How much of John's property paid bills that were faked? _Where_
are John's assets, what of his pension, how long should he
suffer the man's foul detention?  _Where_ is the justice?
_Where's_ the fair play; where has the *fairness* departed I
say? Why can't he speak; why can't he talk -- why can't he tell
us his crime is a crock? What is so secret they lock him away
with the key gone misplaced as is done every day? When will he
get all the rights that he *has* for being _American_, I hasten
to add!

<recovering from righteous sneer>

I'm thinking of you, John; I'm in my back yard. I'm looking at
Venus, and stars that shine, hard. The wind's in my face, but my
freedom's a fake; with you in your jail, my freedom's at stake.
It's all washed away by the whim of a man who handles our lives
with the heaviest hands. Step on his toes in a search for some
equity, and suffer the slings and his arrow's inequity. Make a
demand for respect you be shown, and be thrown to the foot of
the man's jealous throne! Ask for just treatment -- to be kept
well informed, and be found _surely_ outcast, shunned, and then

When is your trial? Shall you be heard? Or will they just mock
you, and keep you interred? May you, fates willing, secure a
release, and slip from their bonds -- free at last, and at


How much longer, people. Remember -- it's _you_ in there...
Without a trial? I thought this was America? <sneering out the
