Site still largely AWOL, not functioning consistently enough for me to get any work done, and I am going mad from boredom.
My host had warned me there would be “service interruptions” this week because “we are upgrading our server hardware and software to significantly improve server response, resiliency and performance.” But I had not realized it would be this bad.
But in the meantime, I invite you to check out this in-depth news feature on toddler Ramona Brown’s 1984 disappearance. The circumstances remind me of the Ricky “Jeannie” Bryant case.
It’s in three parts:
- The Fire
- The Investigation
- The Possibilities
In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Shannon Darnell Harris, who disappeared from Houma, Louisiana on October 10, 1998. This date also happened to be his thirtieth birthday.
Harris visited his mom in Houma that day, then left to take a bus back to Dallas, Texas, where he was living and going to art school. He apparently never made it to the bus stop. Foul play is suspected in his case and it may have been drug-related; he was involved with drugs.
