The Bar Pours a Sip for Janese Talton-Jackson
This story is just pissing me off to no end. Not only is a young, beautiful woman gone, but Janese Talton-Jackson will never get to go home to her tiny humans...because of some complete and utter bullshit.
How can we even say "Rest in Peace"? Who can lay dying on the cold pavement, mind whirling with frantic thoughts of their babies, and then go in peace?
I guess that's why we say Rest in Power instead. Because Janese didn't back down, she didn't cave in, she didn't try to compromise, she didn't bother with fake phone numbers - she just stuck to a plain and simple "No".
So raise your glasses for this woman, Patrons of the Bar, and let us pour a sip to honor her passing.
