The Top Ten

1 lots of fine people have sat staring at the inside of prison walls...Even our Lord Jesus Christ.He spent the last night of his life not with holy men,but with scum like the kind we've got in Oz.One of the last things Jesus
2 Let me tell you, dying is a lot harder on the living than it is on the dead. Death really only hurts those left behind.
3 7 out of 10 inmates are from cities,but 90%of the prisons themselves are in rural areas.You know,farmland, hillsides,forests..you'd think such bucolic surroundings would have a calming effect on those inside.But no,out in the wild,things only get wilder.
4 In my 'hood, you had to learn to run before you learned to walk.
5 And home is what it's all about..a home no matter where you are..end of the day,all of us need somewhere to rest..lay our bones.Even..in a land called Oz..like Dorothy says when she wakes..in her own bed back at Aunt Em's:.."There's no*place like home."
6 ..who cares who lives or dies in prison? We read their names in the morning paper..they mean nothing to us!They're faceless!Truth is we don't want to put a face on them!We don't want to know who they really are because then it might hit too close to home.
7 In the beginning,God was nothingness..he started making stuff..the dirt..sky..water..things that swim..slither..with legs..God turned..into a big shot..a couple..million years,he breathed life into man..And he's been sucking the life out of us ever since.
8 ..That God or Allah or Yahweh has answers to questions we dare not even ask? The story is simple. A man lives in prison and dies. How he dies, that's easy. The who and the why is the complex part...the human part...the only part worth knowing. Peace.
9 ..what have we learned..the lesson for today..all the never-ending days and restless nights in Oz..morality is transient..virtue cannot exist without violence..to be honest is to be flawed..giving and taking of love both debases and elevates us..
10 We are both of us, the same, [Desmond] Mobay. Cop killers. Except every single day, I wish I could take back what I'd done... Yeah, it takes a monster [Desmond Mobay] to kill a monster [Bruno Goergen], right?
