Bill Passes Indiana House to Bring Accountability to DOC
The Indiana state prison system has made headlines several times in recent years for issues related to treatment of inmates. In 2012, a federal judge ruled the Department of Corrections violated the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment when it put mentally ill prisoners in isolation. That same year a 26-year-old first-time drug offender died due to what her family’s attorneys now say was poor health care from the Department. And last month inmates at the Westville Correctional Facility went on a hunger strike after cutbacks to their meal programs, which inmates said posed health risks. Now Peggy Mayfield, a Republican state representative whose district stretches from the west side of Bloomington into Morgan County, has introduced a bill she says would bring more accountability to the Department of Corrections. The bill passed the House and is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate tomorrow. WFHB Assistant News Director Joe Crawford spoke with Mayfield about the bill for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.

Books Unbound – Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Part 13

Play

Born in 1885, David Herbert Lawrence was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, and painter. His collective works are classified as a reflection of the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. His marriage in 1914 to Frieda Weekly, a woman who left her husband and three children for Lawrence, provided inspiration and emotional support for his literary career. Lawrence died in 1930, reaching his peak of fame posthumously.

Banned by U.S. Customs (1929). Banned in Ireland (1932), Poland (1932), Australia (1959), Japan (1959), India (1959). Banned in Canada (1960) until 1962. Dissemination of Lawrence’s novel has been stopped in China (1987) because the book “will corrupt the minds of young people and is also against the Chinese tradition.” Lady Chatterley’s Lover was the object of numerous obscenity trials in both the UK and the United States up into the 1960s.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover, first published privately in 1928, was not published openly in Britain until 1960. It tells the story of the love affair between Constance (Lady Chatterley) and her husband Clifford’s gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors, while exploring the nature of relationships between men and women. Besides the evident sexual content of the book, “Chatterley” spurred controversy for its discussion of the British social class system and social conflict. Penguin, the publisher of the unexpurgated text in 1960, was unsuccessfully tried for violation of the 1959 Obscene Publications Act. The prosecutor was ridiculed for asking, “Is this the kind of book you would wish your wife or servants to read?”
