Birdbaths and a Lockbox
During a San Quentin lockdown, the prison grinds to a halt, and men are confined to their cells 24 hours a day.

Great job on the NPR "Breath of Fresh Air" show today! I wish you all a great future ahead as well as many of those other changed men and women in the legal system that also deserve a second chance at doing life better. By the way for those that feel the need to lean instead of stand up for yourself, I'm a white, southern, male, republican, that listens to NPR as well as Fox, CNN, etc.. news. It's called choice ladies and gentlemen, not a side. Open your ears, eyes, and BRAIN! A SIDE doesn't have it all right or wrong, truth does. Listen, learn, and change! Good day all

I've never heard any type of audio program that made me cry so hard.......that made me think about so deeply long after i shut the program off.....or made me reflect on life and myself so much, i take much less for granted
