On January 13, 1968, Johnny Cash, the Man in Black, performed live at Folsom Prison. Now’s the part where I admit that I haven’t listened to the album, but I did like that one scene from the biopic! Also, here’s an article about how he was an advocate for prison reform.

  1. I got my hands on the Folsom Prison album when I about 4 and played it a lot. Not particularly a fan now (46 years later – I prefer prog rock or classical or swing), but I have good memories of that. Every now and then I consider picking up a CD copy.

  2. Bathrooms are weird. They’re all about psychological hangups. The only real “segregation” required is the segregation between “place where you poop” and “places where you eat and do work”, because of hygiene and odours.
    But really.
    Why do toilets need to be separated by stalls? Why not urinals, then? If they do need separation, why is it these lousy metal walls that don’t go to the floor and make you fully aware (via every sense except direct eye contact) that there’s someone two feet away also defecating? We take it as read that women and men can’t be aware of each other’s bowel movements, but two men or two women can?
    How many people thwart the logistical conventions of public bathroom designers by going to another washroom if someone is using one of the stalls? Or simply refuse to use a public washroom altogether?
    Now wrap up all of the psychological foibles that our parents, religious leaders and tv sets give us with regards to washrooms and throw transgender people into the mix. ZMG! I’m so uncomfortable with … with … with … something about that … I demand that someone, somehow make it stop … or something. What if a woman who used to be a man, or something, heard my flatulence!?!? ARG!!!!1!eleven!! I’m uncomfortable …. !
