~~Sum Bull~ As I watch these Marvel and DC movies of super heroes that we’ve all grew up loving, I can’t help but notice the huge amount of property damage. The action is amazing, but even as peoples’ lives are saved I think realistically if that were to occur many lives would be lost. I believe it was mentioned in Superman vs. Batman of a loss of over one-thousand lives. Here’s where the B.S. comes in: There’s a movie, Hancock (2008), where a Black super hero, played by Will Smith, has no memory of who he is and saves people, but causes disasters in the process, most likely due to his obsessive drinking. My problem with this movie is that Hancock actually does time for the destruction that he’s caused. I mean WTF! , does the Blackman really have to be imprisoned? You have rich boys, like Bruce Wayne and Tony Starks, whose toys destroy their surroundings. There are the aliens, Superman and Thor, who demolish so much with their powers. Oh, let’s not forget about the big, green scientist who smashes everything when he has a temper tantrum. How many of these guys had to do time? What’s even more messed up is that Hancock would lose his power when he’d get close to a particular white woman. Maybe that’s why he did time. Talk about subtext. Well, let’s see what happens with Marvel’s Black Panther. Live from the Pen,

DRUGS

As I observe the current drug epidemic, I reflect on my involvements and the aftermath. The heroin problem isn’t anything new to the inner city or “urban” areas. However, my experience with drugs wasn’t in the city and that’s not where I saw the beginnings of this current problem. Starting at the age of 15, I progressed from selling weed, then crack, ecstasy, PCP and eventually prescription medication. When the recession hit, I lost my job and returned to the drug trade. My previous experience helped me to be more approachable and this gained me access to a certain demographic. Just as this demographic wouldn’t be caught in the inner city purchasing a street drug because of real and imagined risk; they also didn’t want the stigma associated with those drugs. So what better than a quality controlled substance that’s manufactured and distributed by pharmaceutical companies? I’d go on to make more money with prescription drugs than I did with anything else. This government regulated product would soon lead its users to heroin and make criminals of pharmacist and doctors. Those penalized, the dealers and users, who’ve become mutually dependent on each other as well as the drug, go to jail. Instead of eradicating the drug and offering treatment and programs to the victims, pharmaceutical companies mass produce and profit from the sale of drugs. “This is bigger than Nino Brown. This is big business”! Live from the Pen, Mr. Russell
