Once again the 2d Circuit has turned me down–this time the whole Court, en banc.  Not surprising, I was well aware that we were dealing with the Company Store and could expect very little.  Nonetheless as a favorite line from Edna St Vincent Millay:

“Pity me that the heart is slow to learn
What the Quick mind beholds at every turn”

I never lose hope that my case will be resolved as being too obvious a contradiction to justice for them to sustain !

Our next stop is the petition for Certiorari to the Supreme Court, asking them to hear  us.  We will be trying to impress them with the significant wrongfulness of the whole prosecution itself and of the errors at trial and later at sentencing.  Our due date is some time in late December and we are hoping to have Amicus support, so if you are part of a group that supports lawyers or civil rights etc. please suggest it as early as possible.  Contact Jill Shellow, my lawyer by email, for further explanations.

Looking forward to my 73 birthday on October 8, the one bright ray of light  is that my husband, Ralph Poynter, will be speaking at the National Lawyers Guild convention held in Pasadena, California from the 10th to 14th of October.  Addressing the Plenary he will speak of my case and that of other political prisoners locked away for decades by a vindictive government.  I wish I could attend and meet and greet and hug and laugh with my lawyer buddies of many years and many conventions but I will have to be content with my usual micro-management style from afar — Texas, that is !!!

Meanwhile, I continue to tough it out.  I am feeling quite well after the surgery, an infection and then a severe iron deficiency — my usual vim and vigor are back and ready for the fight with the Supreme Court who thinks corporations are people—what will they make of me, a real person ??!! (smile) Join me. Bring me Home, where I can join in some of the epic battles now at hand.
