I have been enjoying the book exchange that happens in the laundry room in my apartment building. Your mention of the Sardonyx Net book made me think of one I picked up here: The Souls of Black Folk, by W.E.B DuBois (first published 1903). It is an eye-opening recounting of the years after the Civil War, during Reconstruction and beyond and does touch on how the end of slavery led to the economic exploitation of prisoners (and the many ways that were found to increase the numbers of black prisoners for that purpose). Anyway, thanks for sharing both books AND thoughts! Delightful.

A lovely legacy, and I see why it is hard to imagine Siri is gone. I think she must still hang out here, reading over people's shoulders.
