woman convicted in dog attack is freed

san francisco (jan. 2) - a woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter along
with her husband in the dog mauling death of a san francisco neighbor was
released from prison after serving more than half of a four-year sentence, a
television station reported.

marjorie knoller, 48, was picked up thursday from central california women's
facility in chowchilla by a friend and traveled to ventura county in southern
california, where she will serve out her parole, ktvu-tv reported.

prison officials announced wednesday that knoller, a former defense attorney
whose license to practice was suspended upon her conviction, would be released
this week.

knoller's husband, robert noel, 62, was released on parole in september. the
two were convicted in march 2002 in the death of diane whipple, 33, who was
attacked in the hallway of their apartment building by the couple's two mammoth
presa canarios.

noel reduced his four-year sentence by working in prison and staying out of
trouble, officials said. heimerich said knoller refused to work part of the
time, delaying her release.

the couple kept the dogs for a state prison inmate and avowed aryan
brotherhood member whom they had adopted.

knoller and noel are appealing their convictions. the state attorney
general's office, meanwhile, is appealing a judge's dismissal of knoller's conviction
of second-degree murder in the case.

ktvu said knoller refused to be interviewed on-camera but that she told the
network she was unhappy about being released because she did not know what she
would do in southern california.

noel, who was paroled to solano county, more than 300 miles away from where
his wife will be living, expressed relief over her release. "i'm happy beyond
words and absolutely relieved she is out," he said.

lucky brand jeans!

hi,

now that school is winding down and is somewhat less
hectic, i find that i can once again read for
enjoyment (what a concept) instead of dry text of
psychoanalytical and student development theory . . .
.

can anyone suggest any excellent books, fiction or
non-fiction?  i love books with a feminist/women
theme.  i love marge piercy and mae sarton.  i love
smart, informative writings as opposed to sappy love
stories.  i love to read about anything new.  i love
comedy - dave sedaris is one of my favorites and i've
read a few of his.  i love his wit. i'm also looking
for really good books detailing the current
environmental state and bush's policies, etc. i
recently devoured the harry potter series, which was
excellent but i've been a hermit for so long and now
i'm ready to enter the adult world again.  ideas?
thank you - i look forward to your helpful
suggestions.!

elaine

       on my "to-read" list is the book i got for christmas: "love," by toni
morrison.
       in anticipation of release of the movie, i read "cold mountain," which
i thought was quite good. for the last year or so, off and on, i've been
reading "capricornia," a massive historic novel about the settling of northern
australia, the plight of the aborigines, etc. folks here might know of the
midnight oil cd by the same name, and it's no mere coincidence; mo said they did
their record as a concept album inspired by the book.

there's always "lies and the lying liars who tell them" by al franken.
i've only had a chance to read the first half, but it's been good so far.
about a year ago i read "them: adventures with extremists" which was
really good too.

i agree with the jeanette winterson recommendation.  i
especially liked "gut symmetries".  and if you want
something a bit lighter, but still quite good, try
"the davinci code".

i will ditto that and recommend the book he(dan brown) wrote before da vinci
code called angels and demons.  i would read a&d first as it has the same main
character and he does make some references to what happened to him in the
first book.

where i do write for) and it is an amazing cd - something has happened
since she got divorced - she got married around to the teeth and i abhorred
the cd (not unlike the way in which certain people hate the perfect world
single - i saw her perform those songs sooooo many times that they seemed
totally overproduced when they came out, not to mention i had awful legal
stuff happen the day i got that cd)

if you love and adore early ani - pre dilate - you're in for a huge treat!

the righteous babe website has 5 songs on it you can hear (and various peer
2 peer cough soul cough seek) have it for download. ani isnt in the riaa
and you wont get sued, but you should financially support this goddess!!!!!!!

oh - www.jonathanfranciscass.com/ani/ has live versions of most of the
album - platforms is a whopping 17 seconds - so if copyright infringement
bugs you, go there.

i love grand canyon.

and if your in maine - the many and one coalition is having a huge
diversity celebration and maine indymedia (ok it is me organizing it) is
having an indie film fest - my film - some other films on dis rights - and
we got official permission to show render - we could totally use some good
g/l/b/t videos - if any one wants to mail me a video and you  have rights
to it - and it isnt porn - meaning it can be shown to a wide audience - let
me know - i totally will play it.

i would recommend jhumpa lahiri's short story collection, interpreter of
maladies. i was really disappointed by her novel, but the stories are
fantastic.

if there's anyone out there who's read the davinci code and is curious about
its historical veracity, this is a good article (especially the commentary at
the end):

i would second the vote for sherri s. tepper's _gate to women's
country_.  actually, i'd recommend nearly any of tepper's novels for
her ability to explore social themes in a sf/fantasy setting and really
make you get it in the process.

personally, i find her concepts kind of peter out during the wrap-up
phase of her books, but that doesn't make reading them any less
enjoyable, and i've enjoyed many months' of mental chewing around on
the concepts she presents in her books.  gate to women's country is one
of my faves, as it doesn't have that little ending problem, and really
introduces some worthy-of-thought concepts.  if i were teaching a
social science course, i'd want to include this in the reading,
somehow.

i tend to read mainly travel literature (no surprise there).  here are a few of my current faves (not all of these are new).

* maiden voyage by tania aebi.  it's an awesome story about an 18 year old woman who sails around the world, solo.  some of the sailing terms are a bit technical, but  her stories and her adventures make up for that.
* hokkaido highway blues by will ferguson.  a usually hilarious sometimes poignant tale of hitchiking japan from south to north.  any expat who has ever lived in japan will be nodding in agreement, but many of my friends who have never step foot in japan agree that this book is awesome!
* forget you had a daughter by sandra gregory.  a terrifying true story of a woman who goes to thailand on holiday, and due to a bad turn of events, is convinced to smuggle drugs out of the country.  she gets caught and ends up serving time in the 'bangkok hilton.'
* vietnam now by david lamb.  i read this book while traveling in vietnam in october.  really interesting read for those who were only taught about vietnam as a country that the us was at war with.

those are just a few i can think of off the top of my head.  happy reading!

recent favorite:
-a fabulous new southern novel, when the finch rises
by jack riggs, a new author
-some things i never thought i'd do by pearl cleage
(all three of her novels and all of her plays are
amazing, and the city of atlanta is like another
character in this one)
-walking the lions by stephen burgen, a literary
mysetery set in barcelona
-the four temperaments by yoni something hyphenated, a
novel about family, ballet, life and love by the women
who put together the barbie chronicles
-anything whitney otto has written (especially a
collection of beauties at the height of their
popularity and the passion dream book)
-beautiful bodies by laura shaine cunningham (also
dreams of rescue)
-i sleep at red lights: life after triplets (a
hilarious non-fiction book)

hope others enjoyed these as much as i did!

i've been away from the list for a few days and today's the 1st day i saw
this thread and i don't think these two were listed: "good in bed" and "in
her shoes" both by jennifer weiner, a former columnist w/ the phila.
inquirer. both books are just a great fun read. in fact, "in her shoes" is
going to be made into a movie w/ cameron diaz and toni colette in the 2 main
parts. not who i would have casted but thats another thread.....

hi everyone,

whenever anyone asks me for book recommendations, there are two i always
recommend. the first and more mainstream of the two is the sparrow by mary
doria russell. this is the best sci-fi i've ever read. calling it sci-fi
does not do it justice; it's about anthropology, sacrifice, spirituality,
grief, and possibly redemption. i've read it at least four or five times and
i always weep openly for the last 20 pages or so. it will knock you out.

secondly, i recommend the sandman by neil gaiman, the best damn comic book
there ever was (and the only one to every win the world fantasy award for
best short story). don't read this for superheroes prancing in tights, cuz
they ain't here. read it because you delight in language and love stories.
the trade paperbacks are available at most bookstores and some libraries. if
you shy away from comics, read "american gods." in this novel neil explores
many of the same ideas that made sandman so great.

those are my picks. yes, i'm a geek.

cheers,
tom m.

hey again,

i totally agree with lisa. kingsolver is genius! the poisonwood bible has to
be one of the 10 best novels i've ever read. love her!

oh, if you like native american fiction, you must read the grass dancer by
susan power and ceremony by leslie marmon silko. both are magical, but
ceremony is a little difficult. still more than worth it, though.


cheers,
tom m.
