My Grillz

TACOMA, Washington (AP) -- Government lawyers tried to remove and confiscate the gold dental work known as "grills" or "grillz" from the mouths of two men facing drug charges.

Apparently it's standard procedure to seize assets in order to prevent suspects from trying to move or hide valuables or evidence. And the lawyers thought the grills snapped out like a retainer, which some, but not all grills do.

Now, maybe these guys aren't subscribers to Vibe magazine, thus they are not down with the most current way rappers spend their insane incomes, but assuming all that money just pops out of the suspect's mouth seems a bit silly to me. I mean, if I'm investing thousands of dollars in my mouth jewelry, you better believe that no one is going to be snag those things out of my mouth when I'm sleeping!

The suspects were apparently in a car on the way to the dentist when they called their lawyers to try and stop the seizure. And my favorite part was the lawyer's statement:

"It sounds like Nazi Germany when they were removing the gold teeth from the bodies, but at least then they waited until they were dead," Richard J. Troberman, a forfeiture specialist and past president of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said.

Hmmm. Aren't we being a little dramatic, Mr. Troberman? Sure, the seizure seems a bit extreme, but we’re talking about them seizing jewelry: it’s not like they’re taking the suspects’ braces or glass eye or fake leg.

I just don’t get it. Some people are going to the dentist and getting their retirement policy welded into their teeth, and I’m afraid to go to the dentist at all.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
