1999 APR 7 - Letter from Woodhill

Prisoner News (May 1999)

'I can't seem to put my ideas down on paper at the moment. I've got no work top. Can't get comfortable enough to draw. Even my letterwriting is effected. These cardboard chairs and tables are a health hazard. You wouldn't know what I mean unless you've sat in one for weeks, months, years at a time and gradually felt your shoulders and upper back rounding. Then after a very uncomfortable day you have to endure an uncomfortable night on a mattress with no give, or in this place on a concrete slab! I have always said that prisons are about breaking the individual. If it's not the system with its pettymundane rules, then iits the furniture.
