If you're a criminal who likes to read — and/or religious, but not Christian —
then the last place you want to be jailed in is Moncks Corner, South Carolina.
According to legal complaints, the only book, good or otherwise, that inmates
at the Berkeley County Detention Center can readily get their hands on is the
Bible. Granted, it's a bestseller, and there's a lot in those pages to keep one
occupied and even entertained — mind-bending seven-day creation of the
universe, violence, sex, walking on water, resurrection, etc. — but
sometimes you just want to read an Agatha Christie mystery. Or, if you're
Jewish, the Torah, in a copy without the extra testament. Of particular
interest to prisoners just might be reading material on prisoners' rights.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
