It seems that no one has given any thought to the possibility that innocent people were convicted, jailed and spent time incarcerated for crimes they did not commit (“Boston seeks $15M to cope with release of inmates,” Bay State Banner, Oct. 18, 2012).
The $15 million should be divided among those who were victimized by the system.
It is a very sad day when U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is able to have folks from our community stand in front of A Nubian Notion with placards with his name on it. Black people still have not learned about politics and manipulation(s).
Ask yourselves: What funding has Scott Brown brought to our communities and what has he done for our veterans reeling from illnesses, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?
Look at Dudley Station and ask Scott Brown why there was not an environmental impact statement presented to our community from his office showing concerns as it relates to increases in respiratory hazards.
Who needs Scott Brown? He is not even around.

Consider this fact: Animals raised for food in the U.S. produce far more excrement than the entire U.S. human population, roughly 89,000 pounds per second. According to the Pew Environment Group, the 523 million chickens raised and killed each year in Maryland and Delaware alone generate enough waste to fill the dome of the U.S. Capitol about 50 times, or almost once a week.
Factory-farm waste often winds up in our waterways, sickening people and killing aquatic life. Unlike animal-based foods, vegan foods are cholesterol-free and generally low in fat and calories. They’re tasty, too.
