"I finally understood that great works don’t begin as great works. They begin as rough ideas. I realized that creation is a process. I thought if I can understand the first step I can learn the next step. I was fully aware that I had much to learn, but I was confident that I could learn it.
Here’s a rough sketch of my own. This is the sketch that later became the cover for The Bad Beginning”
A 55-year-old Pennsylvania mother of seven, sentenced to serve two days in jail because her children were absent too much from school and she couldn’t pay some $2,000 in truancy fines, was found dead in her cell.
The Associated Press reported that District Judge Dean R. Patton, who sent her to prison reluctantly, blamed a judicial system that imprisons poor people who can’t pay fines for minor offensives such as truancy fines. He said:
“This lady didn’t need to be there. We don’t do debtors prisons anymore. That went out 100 years ago.”
It hasn’t gone out in Pennsylvania.
The dead woman was identified as Eileen DiNino, of Reading, who went to jail to wipe clean some $2,000 in fines and court costs imposed on her since 1999 because a number of her children were absent too much from school in Reading and Muhlenberg townships.
The AP reported that more than 1,600 people have been jailed in Berks County over school truancy fines since 2000.
God dammit, America.
wow, that’s the next town over..
