~~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

BOOK REVIEW

As a soon to be published author, I want to bring some attention to others that are of this struggle, incarceration, yet find a way to create and express themselves. In the genre of Urban Novel, I read a real page turner, Live Fast, Die Young by Kenneth Hoffman, a brother that was in the Feds. I had put down the Urban Novels because I came across too much garbage, but this is sho’nuff official joint that can be put with greats like Death Around the Corner or the Ultimate Sacrifice series. Hoffman does a good job of telling a story that isn’t too exaggerated and has some very realistic elements that those of that life can feel. The author also does a great job of capturing D.C.’s Go-go scene and neighborhood life. Next up is Da Shawt’Man Break’n Loose! This is a crazy comic book birthed from the insane mind of Pep O’ Deen. This certainly isn’t for kids. It has controversial subject matter, action, drama, booty shakin’ and an adventure of prison escape that is like no other. The creator’s infusion of issues that plague society make you hopeful that there’s something to fill the void left by the Boondocks. If you want to laugh and shake your head, read it. Writing Freedom from Within the Pen, poems by J.S. Russell coming soon. Live from the Pen

SHOUT OUT TO MY DANCING GODDESS

I used to frequent a strip club called, The Showcase, in Beltsville, Maryland and there was this sexy, chocolate dancer named Seductive Sydney. She got my patronage after informing me that the sisters didn’t get tipped like the white girls. Our conversations, which could have been game, made me ponder certain elements of my life. For instance, she was my senior like the woman I was with and shared other similarities. Like the woman I dealt with, she had a son and previous relationship with a man in prison. The difference was Sydney supported her son, whom she was proud of school and she was faithful to her man while he was in. My woman’s son was a knucklehead and she wasn’t faithful to her ex-husband. I would have liked to have seen Sydney outside of that atmosphere to exchange some thoughts and wisdom. I’m sure it would have been mutually beneficial. I had a little money then but no foresight or understanding. I’d like to apologize for placing dirty dollars in a certain spot when she made it pop. The D.J. would make announcements about that. I also want her to know I respected her hustle, conversation and talent. I felt like she kept it real with me and we should have had lunch. I was Bizness then. Live from the Pen.
