I find posting to Twitter to be a very satisfying project especially when what I have composed is far to long. I then get to participate in an exercise from A River Runs Through It. I get to rewrite half as long.
There was a time when I wrote less occasionally than I do now. An idea would pop in my head an whimsically flow down my arm through the finger tips and pen finally onto the paper.
One of those moments occurred today. It was quiet in the house, there was a pop in my head, a chuckle, and the much typing.
I’ve also just discovered Sunday’s playlist does not appear to be where it should be. But first things first. I’m sharing today’s whimsy cause I can’t keep reading it and chuckling, people are staring, ya’ll need to take over. First whimsy and the herd that play list to it’s home.
Justice Department and National Park Service begin restoration work on Alcatraz Island.
Improvements begin despite the reasons that led Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy to order it closed on March 21, 1963.

Alcatraz, the former federal prison on the small island in San Francisco Bay is getting a little lift and tuck. The Justice Department and National Park Service have begun restoration work on Alcatraz Island. It is being readied as a modern day Elba for possibly a modern day small handed Emp….Dic…..Rul….clown. Alcatraz was developed with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison in 1828 and modified to be a federal prison in 1934. It was initially ordered closed because the penitentiary cost much more to operate than other prisons (nearly $10 per prisoner per day, as opposed to $3 per prisoner per day at Atlanta) and half a century of salt water saturation had severely eroded the buildings. Modern technology however may be giving it a new day in the sun. Elon Musk’s SolarCity Corporation is rumored to be working on an extremely efficient and cost effective system for the Island “however it will not be Twitter compatible”, Musk reported with a chuckle. Poseidon Resources Corporation says the Bay Areas existing water purification and desalination operations can be quite easily modified to cover the needs of Alcatraz. However, don’t expect any headline grabbing escapes. Virginia based Frontpoint Security will be tasked with keeping any potential criminals or rapists securely tucked away from the public. Renovations are expected to be completed on or before January 20, 2021.
