This is a very personal and special episode in which I talk about my experiences in the Japanese slammer. Many of you may know what happened but just to make things clear, the matter is settled, I’m ok, I don’t have a record, and technically it was detention, not imprisonment.
I caused a lot of people I care for great worry for the couple of days my whereabouts were unknown and I am very grateful for their love and efforts in making sure I was ok.
Chris Rock has a joke from his brilliant n*ggers vs black people bit about low expectation boasting. “I ain’t ever been to jail.” “You ain’t supposed to go to jail, you low expectation having…” Sadly, I can no longer laugh at this joke. I’ve been to jail and here is the story. Enjoy at my expense.
