Just a word now and then about working in a prison and for the Department Of Corrections. Plus a good bit of ranting here and there.

I'm Still In Awe Of This Man
I just have to say, along with millions of other internet geeks who watched it, that Felix Baumgartner is my new hero. Any man who can fly 24 miles up in the air in a balloon and even think about jumping out (parachute or no) has gotta have a set the size of Brooklyn.
I didn't catch the event until about ten minutes before he left the capsule and when he actually jumped I almost screamed. He fell out of sight so fast I just sat there with my mouth hanging open going "Holy freaking snap!!!"
To fall so far and so fast and then to land lightly on his feet like that at the end....
That was truly awesome.
Felix, wherever you are right now.... you are my hero.
