BREAKFAST AT ALCATRAZ 1963
I wrote down a quote from a con - "Alcatraz never did nothin' for nobody."
A guide told us that part of the punishment for prisoners on the island were the lights and noises of oh-so-close San Francisco, especially on New Year's Eve when the sound of partying drifted across the water and fireworks filled the sky. They could see it, hear it but, in some cases, were never going to be a part of it ever again.
