Perry has now spent 93 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children, and then daring to say he has lost faith in the justice system. This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
[a note on the above. The 93 days are not 93 days of Perry’s six month sentence. Three of those days were after he was arrested and in custody pending his appearance at Toronto Divisional Court. A further 14 days were accrued when Perry was sent back to jail while the Divisional Court justices pondered his fate (no bail). All up Perry has spent 17 days in jail which have NOT, as is the norm for inmates, been doubled and deducted from his sentence. Therefore while Perry has indeed served 93 days in jail, – only 76 of those days will apply to his six month sentence.]
PLEASE NOTE: Hearings resume at 1100 hours (11 am) this morning, 21 May 2008. Justice Glaude has business of some kind hence the delay.
A sad day indeed yesterday. On so many counts. Perry & Helen’s 19 Anniversary– with Perry behind bars. The heartless refusal by “officials” to escort Perry to Ingleside, Ontario say goodbye to his believed Nan. And Nan’s death.
All this on the heels of Heather’s graduation. It’s a lot for one man to take.
The sheer vindictiveness of what “the system” is doing to Perry in the name of justice defies both logic and comprehension. The animosity directed his way is palpable.
How is Perry? I haven’t talked to him since he received the sad news that Nan is dead. I did talk to him after he was told that the powers that be would not allow him a temporary leave to allow grandmother and grandson to say their final farewells – in person, with a hug and a kiss and a few tears.
Perry was upset by the finality of that news. Obviously he was upset. Nan was like a second mother to him. She helped raise him as a child. Until 19 May 2008 she was holding on to the hope that she could see the boy and hold him one last time. Perry too had hoped against hope.
I am inclined to think that Justice Glaude and the gang responsible for this whole vindictive travesty are sorely mistaken if they think for one moment that such acts of cruelty and godless inhumanity will restore Perry’s faith in the justice system!
Mother Russia. How often do I think of Mother Russia these days? Where is the iron curtain? I can’t see it, but I surely think I can reach out and touch it – I can feel it :(.

I mentioned that Richard Hickerson had written a book. Here are the details.
Author: Hickerson, Richard F.
Title: Music and spirituality / Richard F. Hickerson.
Publisher: Cornwall, Ont., Canada : Vesta, c1980.
170 p. : ill. ; 21 cm.
LC Subject(s): Music –Religious aspects –Christianity
Music –Philosophy and aesthetics
Notes: Bibliography: p. 164-170.
Published in Cornwall no less. I will track this down one of these days and see what this former clerical paedophile turned secular paedophile had to say about music and spirituality. I shudder at the thought. With his collection of porn and books advocating man/boy sex I shudder at the thought.
Will now get together some further Hickerson information. Also want to do a scan of yesterday’s transcripts and recap testimony of interest.
Enough for now
