A judge sentenced her to 10 days in jail for contempt. Three days later, Schwartz began shaking, sweating and hallucinating in her jail cell. Nurses evaluated her and placed her in an observation cell, where she slipped off her inmate ID bracelet and tried to swallow it. An autopsy later determined she’d asphyxiated and that “probable alcohol withdrawal with seizures and delirium” likely contributed to her death. The report shocked Schwartz’s family, who at the time said she wasn’t a heavy drinker. LaClair sued Conmed and its nurses, alleging they failed to properly screen, treat and monitor her, leading to her death. The defendants denied the allegations. Conmed’s nurses said they believed Schwartz was having a panic attack and entrusted the sheriff’s deputies on duty that day to watch over her, according to court filings.

Theyre all under arrest, but Enrile is getting special medical treatment in deference to his age and degenerating eyesight. His one-time top aide, Jessica Lucila Gigi Reyes, is demanding similar consideration after suffering a panic attack at the prospect of being held in the same room with women affiliated with the communist New Peoples Army. At the heart of whats said to be the biggest financial scandal in years is the ease with which politcos and bureaucrats are accused of having made off with large portions of government funds given to them to allocate for public purposes at their own discretion. Some of the funds may have come from a disbursement acceleration program set up by President Benigno Aquino III and still more from a priority development assistance fund, long regarded as a cesspool of graft and corruption. The Philippines supreme court has ruled both programs violate the countrys constitution. Aquino, in a televised defense of the disbursement acceleration program, addressed the Philippine people who elected him as bosses a play upon the familiar polite word of respect when asking for a favor or assistance. In this case, Aquino wanted Filipinos to distinguish between his scheme for providing quickly much needed assistance when and where needed from the corrupt practices of his predecessor, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, whose presidency was marred by charges of pervasive corruption.

“Hell of a punchline…” she began, and then explained that my new buddy Fabian had gone to chat with her (I’d pointed her out to him when we talked) and commiserate over a tough situation. As the two settled in to hang tough during the match, a person or persons approached (Prairie and Fabian wouldn’t tell me who; they’d been sworn to secrecy. As far as I’m concerned, it was the Blue Fairy from the Pinocchio fairy tale; Prairie says it was O Mao de Deus) and, with only a few words exchanged, handed them match tickets. I disbelievingly scrolled through Fabian’s camera, looking at shots of the two of them celebrating inside, the Maracana’s seats, field, and skyline clearly visible behind them. Turns out they were on the opposite side of the stadium from me. Somehow, some way, the day had been saved. Of course, I look back and wish things had gone just a little better.
