    I think the complaints about today's New Day diary and the comments are unfair.

    The comments in this diary reflect the tone, don't you think?

    Some who have recounted their arrests and jail time and prison time, have done so in a light-hearted manner, haven't they?
    So the comments to those comments have been light-hearted in return.

    If someone, such as Mollywog commented in this diary, the replies to her would be much different.
    No one would take a light-hearted approach to her very serious and very sad diary about her son.

    DailyKossacks are not cold-hearted people nor are we uncaring and without compassion.

    I am sorry that Mollywog is saddened and dismayed by New Day today and our comments, but for people in that diary to condemn those of us commenting in this diary is just a tad unfair, in my most humble opinion.

    All we need is LOVE!

      but I wanted people to take a look at her diary to get another perspective.

      If my son had been arrested for something like participating in the occupy movement, I would feel he was heroic. I think with Molly's son, that isn't the case.

      But whether your child is in prison for a good reason or a bad reason,  there is still the terrible worry for his/her health and safety.

      had not seen nor read this one.

      my reaction was to her diary was a comment that i've reconsidered after receiving a message from someone i respect here.

      mea culpa - i did not know this diary existed.  i wasn't online for most of yesterday and today and had not read this diary.  as mollywog had not linked to it, i assumed wrongly that it referred to generalize comments made in the past.
