04:40 pm: Nice Weather, Too Much Pain
I think the pain is because I didn't scoop seed from the 50-pound bag long enough. I thought I got enough out that it would be safe to lift the bag and pour the rest in. Wednesday night, I'll take the big deal pain meds and see how that works, since I don't need to go out on Thursday.

Tomorrow I'm getting stuck for the lipid panel. I emailed to find out why I hadn't seen results yet and my primary doc is off until mid-July, but the nurse replied that it hadn't been done. I even took a printed list of tests to the lab, and they didn't do the last one! The nurse said she'd give me the results after I get the panel done.

I was out filling the birdfeeder today, putting more water plus a bit of bleach in the fountain, and thinking I should try hacking at more ivy that is advancing on the porch. But I hurt too much and Lucila is coming soon, so maybe Thursday. It's only 81F out there and not very humid, a lovely day for summer.

Remember when I told you about the prisoner found dead in his cell? He was strangled. Seven prison guards and an "undisclosed" number of supervisors had access to him in those 20 minutes. The FBI is investigating it as a civil rights matter and the Maryland State Police are handling the primary investigation.

I didn't finish my BFAC project last night -- between getting online late and Making Light having eight new threads, some with hundreds of posts, I finished online at 3am. But I'm starting much earlier today and hope to finish the project tonight.

he prisoner found dead in his cell?

Oh, brother -- someone is SO dead over this. A prisoner in a cell is a responsibility, not a target. PG County Jail has been having problems that are clearly related to corruption, but this one is bad. He shouldn't have been in that jail but "it was late" and the other excuses got them what they wanted, and now someone's going to end up in jail for this.

Someone had better be SO dead over this. I have hope, since the Maryland Police are running the investigation. Frankly, I'd be surprised if the FBI found civil rights violations -- people were mad at this guy because he was accused of killing a police office and that's probably what got him killed, not his skin color. And of course, there's always the possibility that it was one of the other three suspects who did the actual running over and dragging, and this guy wasn't even guilty.

This is just so stupid, and in our area, everybody knows it would happen in PG.
