Saturday morning update: Joe P-D drove all the way from Knoxville to Ocilla. After spending time there checking up on all the prisoners of conscience he drove back to Knoxville. I received a phone message from him last night around (9:05 Pacific Time), which means it was midnight back there. Joe was at a rest stop for a brief rest somewhere between Ocilla and Atlanta. He should be back in Knoxville by now getting some needed (and well-deserved) rest before sending out another of his thorough updates. Stay tuned.
Our roving person on the ground down South, Joe Power-Drutis, is in Ocilla, home of the now infamous Irwin County Detention Center and some of the Y-12 prisoners of conscience. He visited with Steve Baggarly yesterday (had a good visit with Steve), and today is scheduled to see Ardeth, Carol, Jean and Jackie, if she is out of medical isolation. Joe will send a report once he returns to Knoxville this evening. Stay tuned folks!
