Anne Perry Message Board
posts on 7/19/2006 10:23:08 PM
Just popping in to say "hello" before my next treatment. I hope all is well with everyone. Derrick, the tv series that you mentioned will premiere here on the BBC-America on Monday, July 24th at 10 PM. It's entitled "Life on Mars". I love a number of the police/detective programs on the BBCA. It's always interesting to see how Hollywood fails when they try to remake British programs. The Anne Perry message board that we post to is overseen by All Readers and is unfortunately subject to the myriad foibles of the Internet.

Derrick, I thought you were the one who was in charge of the borad. Do you have any idea who could be messing with the board?

Yes, and imagine how it must have been to wear corsettes and hoops! When I was little I had a red snowsuit and when it got wet I probably weighed an extra 25 kilos! (Wrong season but still shows how much nicer clothes are today. - Well I guess that is a matter of opinion too.) I'm a little concerned that the site may be being monitored more than I first realized. I had tried to send messages before and it would not send but at least I got a message. The times lately that I know something hasn't gone through I haven't received anything. It almost appears that the message has been blocked and I can't back to my previous page. Don't know enough about computers to see where/how this could be happening. Will keep trying as I do love to "talk"! Enjoy the day. We've been quite warm here too (30-30 C) but today's supposed to be a balmy 25!

A quite high proportion of the messages I type don't reach the board. There seems to be some sort of censorship, but guess it must be computer driven as I cannot imagine someone in London reading all the messages, whatever the time dayor night and deciding what can appear.
I wanted to make photos available to anyone who wanted to see the sites of Anne's stories, but it was blocked. I asked Anne why seeing it was to her advantage for the publicity and she said she would have a word with whoever manages her web page. Nothing happened however., Romeo & Juliet now finished in fantastic weather for an English Summer getting up to 30 - 32 C every day. Not allowed to water garden with hoses such a long time since we had prolonged rain. Imagine how hot theymust have been in thick serge uniforms in Pitt's day,

I just sent a message but I don't think it went through. Did you get a different one than this from me?

Derrick, everybody is mad at us. I used to get so upset when I read things like that but now I've reached an age when I really don't care.
I was trying to think of a book where Monk or Thomas interrogated someone in a police station and for the life of me I can't. They seem to solve their cases in the field. Thanks to todays knowledge a man who spent 21 years in prison was proven innocent and set free. I am sure there are many, many more people who are in jail today who don't deserve to be. Oh well, I quess its better then in the days when a person was tortured and if they survived they were innocent.

The programme about the time shifting detective is called (I think) Sands of Mars. Second series is being made.
AntimAmerican feeling running very high at the moment or at lest against your justice department over the use of an anti terrorist extradition treaty which our stupid government signed without reading the fine print.
They're using it to get hold of three Bank officials who they claim may have been implicated in some fraud in America. Lots of antiUSA hype in the Media. Looking back can anyone recall Pitt interogating a prisoner in a police station? - and getting a confession? or Sgnt Evans for that either.
Busy staging Romeo and Juliet at the moment for NT open air theatre. My "constables" have seven foot long pikes/halberds to maintain law and order. In the words of Cpl.Jones "They don't like it up 'em"
If you don't get "Dads Army" hard luck!

What's the expression - "We've come a long way baby"? Boy have we ever. And, I believe, for the better. Law and Order is a rather sensative subject lately, especially in North America, and I can understand the concerns of citizens wanting to make sure that they and their families are protected. But we also must be very sure that we continue to find the true wrongdoers and not just the people that we think are guilty, or that we would like to be guilty. And when we make mistakes they must be corrected. Hopefully modern methods make that easier and more common. That TV program about the detective going back in time sounds SO interesting. I hope that it comes "over here". What a neat premise. Sorry, being long winded again but there is so much that could be talked about when looking at these situations.

Lets face it, there were no civil Rights in those days. When the police grabed someone they were guilty until proven innocent. Beatings were common and many people died before they were proven not guilty. Most of the time no one even tried to help them.
