He May Be Redefining All That Sucks.

Here's a letter from Clarence, in response to my question, "How exactly does one sneak stuff into prison?"

Couple o' ways to get shit in. Arrange something with the guards in advance. But you pretty much have to be one of the top 2 coolest people in the joint to pull that off, because these guys take no shit. Professionally.

Apperently the way to go about it is to get clearance for some stuff, preferably related to what you want to bring in. Such as, get clearance to bring in some PBS documentaries. VHS only, cause you know those lil bastards will steal a dvd, break it into several knives, and then send some fools to the infirmary. Once you have the clearance you get yourself a cart (which also needs clearance) that can carry a whole buncha shit, and then wheel the whole jank in when you find a lazy guard. This absolutely incredible English teacher has smuggled in over 2,000 books that way.

We had a speaker today. Remember the Dylan song, and Denzel movie, Hurricane? Well the other dude that was with Hurricane Carter that night gave his rap today. Got the same charge, triple homicide, as the Hurricane, only nobody knows about him cause nobody wrote a song about him. Good stuff.

And here's where I met the first chump. After the speech I turned to another teacher and let him know it was good stuff. He then told me the speech was "horseshit," and that "he was blaming the white man for all his problems." Well, if there ever was a guy who can blame his problems on the white man, its this dude, because after being convicted solely on race, he served 28 fucking years for a crime he didn't commit. Mind you, the dude who said this was a white guy surrounded by dozens of violent black guys and their equally violent "protectors" with sticks. Unfuckingbelievable. In our curt conversation after that he then brought up how the Patriot Act needs to be strengthened and how abortion is morally wrong cause "it doesn't work out for anybody."

I need to keep tabs on this motherfucker, cause I think he may be redefining all that sucks.

"This absolutely incredible English teacher has smuggled in over 2,000 books that way"
An English teacher has to *smuggle* books in???

Jeff, thanks for posting the letters from Clarence. They are really fascinating.

When I read this, I thought, WTF?
"This absolutely incredible English teacher has smuggled in over 2,000 books that way."

An English teacher has to *smuggle* in books?

So I posted the same thought twice because the first one took like forever to show up and I thought I must have done something wrong so I posted again. I'm just going to sit quietly over here for a while, OK?
I hope this information has been helpful.
