I do write many snail mails...well, very many. I do hear what you're saying and I feel ya.

Consider the converse...

Just because one is on the out...does not mean...each in turn may experience, tragedy, pain, suffering, loneliness and loss.

I find myself not wanting to say the whole truth because no matter how hard I feel I have any particular can never compare to the living hell some of you live thru. My heart aches for SHU and endless or frequent lockdowns...the horror of bullying...the lack of humane physical facilities...the empty baggers...and the noise, the endless noise.

What right have I to whine about my petty little problems?

I appreciate your point however...succinct wisdom.

I remain, John Pfister

Thanks for writing! I worked on the transcription for your post.

I've only been able to transcribe the first page but I read all the pages and liked what you wrote a lot. Thanks for sending in a piece of you that's put on a page.
I hope to finish this whole piece myself over the next few weeks. Lol unless someone beats me to it.

Take care and keep on writing. You are quite articulate.

I am deeply concerned with a switch to GTL. Not in regards to electronic communications, but in regards to movement within the industry to halt snail mail by turning to electronic solutions (already implemented in Pennsylvania) and GTL's so-called "visitation solutions" implemented in private institutions contracted by states through GTL. No matter what way you try to sell it, electronic visitation is no substitute for live visitation. There is no substitute for a touch, a hug, the relaxed communication of physical, mental, and spiritual communication between loved ones. These forms of visitation are sold as "cheaper," less manpower intensive, lesser movement logistics, and equal to face to face communication. Wrong, wrong, wrong! The power of human interaction cannot be digitized or monetized. In the final analysis, digital reproduction of personal interaction is unconstitutional...This is the song I sing. Won't you sing along?

I remain, John Pfister

Oopps....I'm hopeful I accidentally sent my message to you rather than erasing it.

To finish what I hopefully included in my message--your talents as a writer are valuable to affecting change. You can be very productive just writing about your experiences at Stanley and suggesting changes in the Wisconsin prison system.

Thank you for sharing your talents.

Evy Nerbonne

P.S. Please advise as to whether you received the first part of my message. If not....I'll recreate and resend.
