Over the past few weeks I have mailed five additional “Letters to a Future DR Inmate” to Tracey. These were written by some of the men on Level 2, as I thought it might be interesting to see how other men here considered giving advice to an imaginary new arrival. Obviously, none of these made it past the mail room (at the time of this writing, anyway). I have also been informed that a greater percentage of my correspondence has been vanishing than is the norm, so I want to set some ground rules for everyone who writes me, as I am really bloody sick of losing people over misplaced mail. If you are in the U.S. and you send me a letter or an email and have not heard back from me in four weeks, assume I never received your communiqué. Just reprint and re-mail it. Add two weeks for anyone outside of the U.S. There. Simple. No more confusion, right? One can hope. (One can also hope that this gets out, too…)
