You know a bail bondsman before you know how to drive. You've been in waiting rooms for visits and releases. You know about barriers, tangible and translucent -- a hell on both sides of the glass. You know what not to talk about, what will never be talked about, what needs to be talked about.
I am an unapologetic liberal, and in may respects, I suppose I am a Democratic Socialist. But I support Hillary Clinton rather than Bernie Sanders because she gets my issues -- and he does not. You see, in addition to being a lifelong liberal, I am also a disabled woman.
