Totally at odds with the hippies, flower children, rock n' rollers, druggies, war protesters and existentialist poets--young Jehovah's Witness men were clean-cut, polite, squeaky clean oddballs about to be fed by their Governing Body into a meat grinder on purpose.

The male version of Orange is the New Black with God added! I recount thinking and feelings which led to my baptism as Jehovah's Witness and the eventual clash with the federal government over... More > induction into the armed forces during the Vietnam War. Excerpts from my book: (Inside County Jail) "Jail is like living at the bottom of a drain with the hair, spit and rotten teeth. Jail is for cheaters, thieves and molesters, bullies, sober drunks and dangerous creeps. There is no safe distance or personal space or intermission within the s-t-r-e-t-ch-ing elasticity of time. Jail is not for 20 year old virgin Christian boys who had never hurt a fly. So, why do I think Jehovah God wants me in here? I mean, really? Am I supposed to persuade somebody here of something?" I WEPT BY THE RIVERS of BABYLON is available as a standard 6 X 9 paperback or as an e-book compatible PDF. (218 pages.)< Less
