To Fleastiff,
I believe you replied to a web site promoter (russion, or something like that) who had posted 20 or so one line or one word responses to a random selection of posts, just so he could get his post count enough to spam with html link to his site. It seems he's banned now and all his posts removed. There's a similar poster just before you in this thread (ann07cor.) who seems to have survived, but looks to have been trying the same trick.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

Nowadays there would be drug counseling but back then her country fired her and some felt it was a harsh penalty. Throughout her career of slinging hash, playing poker, blogging about poker, serving stints in rehab, jail and prison she was considered quick witted and humorous, but always returned to drugs to dull the pain of having lost the only job she ever wanted to have. She started dying as a teenager when she was escorted out of the NSA building and finally completed the task in Las Vegas at age 43.

RIP

For some reason I've been thinking about those who make one mistake when they live in a world where none are allowed. Wish I could stop.

Very sad story. Wish she could have turned it around. RIP.

High School graduates were often hired by the NSA since the rich enclaves in Maryland offered the sons and daughters of stable, reliable government employees.

She learned all her former job mates were wealthy, now held highly responsible jobs with the NSA.




Federal Government employees in the DC area are not rich except possibly at the highest levels - Presidential appointees -
they may be very comfortable - but not what people would generally consider rich

in the DC area the rich are lawyers at the partner level, some high level Doctors, Surgeons and others who are very active in business; Lobbyists, and a few very successful business people such as real estate developers

you're talking about people who easily have a net worth of greater than $15 million

this elite group does not generally include Federal Government employees - they aren't invited to the cocktail parties of the rich






anyway it was an interesting story about this lady

I'm more concerned with MY failures in a no mistakes allowed situation.
Sept 11th still weighs heavy upon me.

Are you saying a failure of yours contributed to the 9/11 disaster? If so, I would love to hear the story.

It is all in my 09/10/ Treason Thread dealing with my adventures in a computer lounge in Seattle Wa. You and SOOPOO have markedly different views of my veracity. My blog has always had a variety of references to that incident.

As with 80% of our addicts they are self identfid. If they don't get into drug diversion programs, they do just fine.
Most will relapse because they go from rehab to the same friends, same hopeless jobs, same friends with same values.

Trainspotting, Stella does Tricks, etc.
