Journal of activities:
Carole and I were happy to arrive home safely last night from our trip to Indianapolis. Upon landing, I returned a call to my probation officer, Christine. Christine had been scheduled to visit my class at San Francisco State University as a guest speaker. We had planned Christine’s visit more than three months ago. She called to apologize and to give news that her supervisor would not allow her to attend my class. Apparently, the supervisor thought that Christine’s presence in my class would present a conflict of interest. News that she wouldn’t attend disappointed me. The students and I would have appreciated her presentation. Fortunately, Christine helped by presenting a substitute speaker. Sharon Alberts retired from U.S. Probation relatively recently and she agreed to attend our class. I hadn’t met Sharon before, but I was very happy that she agreed to help our class understand the duties of a federal probation officer. Prior to beginning the class I met with Karina Ioffee in the SFSU office assigned to me. Karina is a reporter for a San Francisco public radio station and she has been working to produce a story about my return to society and my role at the university.
