From Prison to Ph.D.: The Redemption
and Rejection of Michelle Jones

New York Times, by Eli Hager

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/13/2017 7:59:29 PM

Michelle Jones was released last month after serving more than two decades in an Indiana prison for the murder of her 4-year-old son. The very next day, she arrived at New York University, a promising Ph.D. candidate in American studies. (Snip) Elizabeth Hinton, one of the Harvard historians who backed Ms. Jones, called her “one of the strongest candidates in the country last year, period.” The case “throws into relief,” she added, the question of “how much do we really believe in the possibility of human redemption?” The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization that focuses on criminal justice and

Comments:
Well, Harvard has been the dumping grounds for future liberal politicians, scientists, historians, policy makers. As one who over twenty years ago was involved as a participant in a program where the other person had to reveal "why" they were in this specialized hospital, admitting the truth was paramount. She needs to tell the true circumstances about her 4-year old-daughters death & where her body was buried to the police. (Parents of missing children always seek this closure.) Then, I would believe she deserves another chance, since there is no double jeopardy protects her.

Once a murderess, always a murderess. Her dead four-year-old will always be that woman´s legacy.

The gift of education does not create redemption for murdering a human being, especially one’s own baby.

I agree that this article is a sickmaker.

A student is not a Ph.D. candidate until he, she, or it passes doctoral comprehensive exams.
Murderess Jones is a doctoral student.

See why the good guys never win ?

It´s hard to imagine a child killer described as a "breathtaking feat in rehabilitation" She will take a seat from someone who did everything right and wants to enter college.
After the comment about Drew Faust, I can see where Harvard is going.

Why are our leaders always going rah rah rah for the bad guys?

I found myself having mixed feelings as I read through the article. And I, too, don´t like the idea of her being a professor to young college students (I´m assuming that´s what she wants to do with her doctorate.)

I can think of no good "excuse" for what she did - except her youth and living in a world of abuse does do the most awful of things to the human psyche.

If she has indeed atoned for her sins, not just in spending her time in prison, but also continuing her bereavement for her child, what she could be useful and good at is helping young women NOT get to prison. There´s plenty of studies on incarceration - what about programs to prevent abuse, encourage learning, all those things she apparently didn´t have when growing up. That´s where she can really pay her dues to society.

NBC insiders confused by
Megyn Kelly’s new show
New York Post [Page Six], by Oli Coleman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/25/2017 11:40:43     Post Reply
NBC insiders are going to need some serious convincing about Megyn Kelly’s new show. If TV critics are confused by what one called her “Bride of Frankenstein” morning show, Page Six hears that veteran network producers are baffled by the decision to make her “Megyn Kelly Today” a “politics-free zone.” In the run up to Monday’s premiere in the 9 a.m. “Today” slot, Kelly — who built her reputation on hard-hitting Washington coverage, not to mention her public spat with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — said that she’s “not a political animal and I never have been.” During the launch episode she announced that

A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing.

Chelsea Manning, a former American soldier jailed for leaking troves of classified information, said on Monday that she was banned from entering Canada due to criminal convictions in the United States. Manning had tried to cross at the official border office at Lacolle, Quebec, on Friday. On Monday, she posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials to her Twitter account that said she was not admitted because she was convicted of offences deemed equivalent to treason in Canada. "So, I guess Canada has permanently banned me? Denied entry b/c of convictions similar to "treason" offence," she wrote.

Evil Klingons Modeled After President

Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new Star Trek and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told Rolling Stone that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world.

As the world carries on with its normal routine despite his prediction that the world would end this past Saturday, Christian numerologist David Meade clarified that the end of the world is still imminent. Specifically, Meade says the world´s end will begin October 15, 2017. That´s when, Meade says, "Jupiter crosses the womb region of Virgo." "That´s when the action starts," he continued. "Hold on and watch -- wait until the middle of October and I don´t believe you´ll be disappointed." Clarifying his earlier prediction, Meade says the "mainstream" got it wrong in thinking something "visible" would happen on September 23.

President Donald Trump was back on the attack on Monday, saying that “many” fans booed those players who took a knee and who spoke out during the weekend´s NFL games. "Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!" Trump tweeted the morning after an NFL game day that saw players or owners on nearly all of the teams take action or issue statements against the president. "The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!" Trump

Cornell students move to ban ‘hate speech’

A Latino student at Cornell University overheard somebody chanting, “build a wall,” so now the student government passed a resolution condemning “hate speech.” Whatever that is. Seriously — what is hate speech? Read the First Amendment, and it’s not mentioned there. In fact, the whole concept of the First Amendment was in order that government could not intrude on a citizen’s right to express speech deemed by some as offensive — a sort of constitutional right to say hateful things. Cornell students — and not just students, but the ones who serve on the student government and therefore, ought to know better — just don’t

Senate Republicans revised their last-ditch Obamacare Monday in an 11-hour bid to win over key holdouts, after prospects of passing a repeal bill dimmed significantly over the weekend. An analysis released by Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican and lead sponsor, said bill writers turned the dials enough to give states such as Alaska and Maine an overall boost in funding through 2026, after independent analyses suggested those states would lose out under the initial bill. It’s unclear if independent analysts will agree with the data calculated by the Health and Human Services Department. Mr. Cassidy and his main co-sponsor,

President Trump accused Iran of collaborating with North Korea to strengthen their missile technology Saturday evening in a Twitter post criticizing the 2015 nuclear agreement between the U.S., Iran and five other nations.

Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein.

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,
