Karen Lancaster McCutchin apologized for hiding two of her son’s laptops in a kitchen cabinet, letting her “maternal instinct” get in the way of FBI agents executing a search warrant. You remember Barrett Brown from this Tim Rogers story. And you remember that Barrett Brown story from this speech Tim gave when he won a National Magazine Award for it.
Another column by Barrett Brown has just been published by The Intercept. It's a delight to read, as always. But he got busted for snorting morphine and has been transferred to a higher security prison in South Texas. So it's a rather depressing column, too.
Tim is the resident Barrett Brown expert, but we are all busy trying to make sure we have Christmas around here, which has led to about eight fires, and Tim is directly involved in putting out at least four or five of them. So, it falls to me to tell you that tomorrow morning Barrett will find out if he's got to spend any more time in the joint. I hope the answer is no, but I also enjoy his writing about prison life. So -- no, I hope he gets out ASAP. #freebarrettbrown
