21:04 < srevilak> hi Joe and Joe
21:04 < srevilak> jokeefe:
21:04 < srevilak> hi Joe and jokeefe
21:04 < srevilak> irc client autocomplete got the better of me
21:05 < Joe> Is this whatthe spell co fu
21:05 < Joe> Confusion, lol
21:05 < Joe> Is like....
21:07 < Joe> How are you srevilak?
21:07 < srevilak> alright
21:07 < srevilak> which is to say, nothing too remarkable going on
21:07 < srevilak> and you?
21:08 < srevilak> hi malt
21:08 < malt> hello everyone
21:08 < malt> sorry i'm late
21:08 < malt> sam capradae, worcester
21:09 < Joe> Lots of stuff but the most remarkable thing is the fact that
       I do not have serious concussion. Bit of a funny story looking at it now.
21:09 < Joe> Jokeefe see.s
21:10 < Joe> Seems to be asleel
21:10 < Joe> We have not ided yet
21:10 < malt> oh neat
21:13 < Joe> I have been unusually busy again this week. Sorry for last
       Sunday but I will be happy to explain this week.
21:14 < srevilak> No worries.  Stuff happens, and you have a lot on
       your plate
21:14 < Joe> Joseph Onoroski, Lowell
21:15 < Joe> I do but so do us all. How can I ask anything of anyone
       else if I am not willing to explain myself. You fine gentlemen take the
       time to do the video and you deserve to know.
21:16 < Joe> Besides, it's a good story at this point.
21:18 < Joe> Since I don't have much to add to this meeting, shall
       we adjourn?
21:18 < Joe> O wait, there is one thing to discuss
21:20 < malt> what's taht?
21:22 < Joe> The new life sentence law being pushed in ma. Looking for
       it now
21:23 < Joe>
21:25 < Joe> Kind of a bombshell.
21:25 <@jokeefe> ahoy
21:25 < srevilak> Hi jokeefe
21:27 < Joe> Ahoy
21:27 < malt> well howdy
21:27 <@jokeefe> guess the issue comes down to whether you think a
       murder can be redeemed. if you don’t then you want to look them away
       forever. if you do, then you support parole
21:29 < malt> prisons are not rehabilitative
21:30 < Joe> I support restorative justice. Though how do you tell that
       to the families. I agree that incarceration is pure punishment and does
       not rehab anyone.
21:30 <@jokeefe> This thread was helpful
21:31 < Joe> Usually they come out as part of a gang or as a better crook.
21:32 < malt> there was a longitudinal study that broadly supported the
       fact that incarceration is not effective
21:32 <@jokeefe> that thread points that out
21:34 < malt> oh pfft, this is the exact thread i learned this fact from
21:34 <@jokeefe> Is
       https://etherpad.pp-international.net/p/MAPPImmigrationPlank ok?
21:34 < Joe> That's a good thread but the challenge comes with the worse
       crimes. Ie murder, rape, etc
21:34 < malt> aye
21:35 <@jokeefe> I feel the first paragraph needs more to it, but am
       not what more ot add?
21:36 < Joe> Hows that?
21:37 < malt> linking in white supremacy to anti immigration
21:37 < malt> "without most of those country's problems." is not a
       helpful contribution
21:39 < Joe> Hmmm
21:40 < malt> i only recently saw arrested development
21:40 < malt> so stew jokes are still a novel concept, to me
21:42 < malt> i gotta dip, baby just threw up
21:43 <@jokeefe> good luck
21:44 < Joe> How are you Jokeefe?
21:45 <@jokeefe> tired
21:45 <@jokeefe> you?
21:46 <@jokeefe> are you all good for recording on Sunday?
21:47 < Joe> Beaten like a red-headed step child by a 7 year old. Dog
       has a broken leg and my house burnt down. My life is a country song, lol
21:47 <@jokeefe> at least you are upbeat
21:47 < Joe> I am, sorry for last week.
21:47 <@jokeefe> no worries. breaks are good
21:48 < Joe> Like a proper irish gentleman, I can do nothing but laugh
       at what God desires to give me this week.
21:48 < Joe> Sometimes up, sometimes down. Always memorable.
21:50 <@jokeefe> So, this Sunday good for a pirate news recording?
21:50 < Joe> I will give you the full rundown on Sunday. Btw. Can you
       make it to Lowell this weekend?
21:50 < srevilak> I'll be available on Sun
21:52 < Joe> I can show you the space I have to make a recording
       studio. If you are interested.
21:52 <@jokeefe> Not sure about this weekend, unfortunately. Let’s
       figure out a time that works in the future.
21:53 < Joe> I will be available Friday as well.
21:53 <@jokeefe> Work has me flat out
21:53 <@jokeefe> I’ll schedule the Pirate News recording then
21:53 < srevilak> I know that feeling ...
21:53 < Joe> Same.
21:54 < Joe> Motion to adjourn?
21:54 < srevilak> second
