  Cruel and Unusual Punishment.
Over the last two weeks there have been rumors on top of rumors.

The base of all the rumors is that they are transferring some of the inmates here out. There has been no official confirmation of the pending move of any inmates and it is hard to figure out why or who the prison officials will transfer.

Most of the inmates here do not want to be transferred. I helped one innate file a petition with the court to stop his impending move. This inmate ended up leaving before the court had responded. Several more inmates left so far this week.

There have been various leaks and misinformation passed to certain inmates as to who is due to be transferred. So far my name has not come up as one to be transferred but who knows at this point what is going on. Two names were called today that surprised a few of the inmates that thought they had the inside scoop.

There has been no reliable official explanation as to what is happening or what options, if any, are open to those that do not want to be moved. Bill also left here this week.

I have decided to speed scan my New York Times backlog and have managed to get through two and a half weeks worth. My goal is to finish up the third week by Monday. I have torn out a few selected articles and will work them into some interesting blogs as to why one needs to at least look at the paper each day.

I still have plenty of books to read but have been making some headway. If you could hold on to them a little longer that would be appreciated. Hopefully this whole transfer issue will die down soon and I will remain here.
