Night Crawler

"I don't come up here [often]," he says, "but this was where I lived for 10 years. I could look across the bay and see my real home, but I could never have any contact with it. Suicide was never far from anyone's mind. The greatest injustice, though, is that society judges cons by what goes in and not what comes out. I have been stigmatized. My wife has been stigmatized. My daughter has been stigmatized."

The tour is led into the dining hall where Bread & Roses has prepared a two-hour blues and jazz concert with Jon Hendricks and Les McCann called the "Evolution of Blues," something similar to the entertainment Mimi Farina and her organization provide year-round.

Would Quillen have enjoyed a little live music during his prison term?
"We used to dream about such a thing," says Quillen. "Something to break up the time, a little look at the free world. It would have made all the difference."
