    I’m impressed, I need to say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the concern is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am quite pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    Hi, I saw your article on the Huff Post and I wanted to ask you a couple of questions. Could you contact me via email? I realize that the rules differ prison by prison and state by state but you might be able to help point us in the right direction…

    Is it possible to help prisoners with pads? Donated pads? Donate to commissary? Or maybe efforts to end this practice of punishment should be in lobbying for changes in law?

    Thank you in advance… Great stuff, keep the articles coming!
