Received via Corrlinks (the email system for BOP [Federal] inmates) today from our friend Mickey:


Gosh, It’s so great to be out of the Hole after 35 days! 

It feels super weird to me after being locked in a 12′ x 8′ cell for over a month with the window covered.

Honestly, I can’t believe in 2017 that they are still allowed to do that to people. It has to stop! It’s ridiculous!

I just wanted to say Hi ; – ) and see how you are doing? I heard it’s rough out there in the Free World???

I haven’t heard from many of you in a while but i pray that you are well and hope to hear from you soon.

I am almost down to 100 days until I go to halfway house in Philly December 6th, 2017. These last few months are creeping along but thanks for supporting me with your; letters, pics, prayers, love. I’m very grateful, Thank You : – )

Remember that the BOP changed their policy and now they want you to send letters on white paper in white envelopes with no stickers, not even return address labels. You can still print out letters on your computer. Some people have gone to using a stamp for the return address or typing or hand writing it. I am so sorry for the change.

Well, have a great week, my friends. Be well and take care of yourself.

This is a little ironic, considering BOP uses to and from labels (stickers) on the envelopes that the prisoners use. But there you go – if we do it, it’s now considered contraband and the mail is rejected. Any excuse to limit outside contact for prisoners. Disgusting.
