    Homeles2 man arrested

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A mentally ill homeless man will serve 57 months in federal prison for threats he made against President Bush.

    Timothy Wade Pinkston threatened in August to go to Washington and shoot Bush. At the time, the 48-year-old was committed to a hospital psychiatric unit.
    Court records say he repeated the threat to Secret Service agents, saying he didn't like the president's foreign policy or his handling of the war in Iraq.
    Pinkston told a federal judge in Tampa on Wednesday that he is HIV-positive and bipolar and has a substance abuse problem. He said he'd been taking drugs and drinking when he made the threat and didn't know what he was saying. He was previously charged with threatening the president in 1991 and also sent threatening letters to the governor of Georgia.
    ============================== ==========================

    Well, he won't be homeless anymore and he will be on his medication.

    being crazy doesn't mean someone is stupid

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Damn I wish I would have thought of that. No car or house payments and a vacation at Club Fed.

    I am sure the jails and prisons are full of mentally ill persons. Where else are we going to put them.
    Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
