I borrowed a copy of last month's Razor Wire belonging
to my neighbor, Noah Robinson. In between my own room and the
law library, somebody picked it up, and I need a copy to replace
the missing edition. Can you help?
Mr. Robinson claims he would rather have lost his Oakleys sunglasses
than his Razor Wire. The edition was last month's, and
I can pay for another copy if needed. Please let me know. - Coleman

been sent to you and Noah Robinson. Thanks for the nice letter!)
I have spent the last 14 years at FCI Sheridan,
for a drug conspiracy. But as of right now I'm in one of the
county jails in Portland. I was one of the inmates indicted for
a tobacco conspiracy, which holds a maximum sentence of six months.
Since I'm going to be here for a while, I would like to get a
copy of one of your newsletters to share with these guys in the
county jail. They have never heard of your organization, so I
want to show them what I'm talking about. Also if you want to
know any more about the so called tobacco conspiracy please let
me know. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. Thank
you for your time in this matter.
Yours truly, Randy
I've been reading a lot of your literature and I wanted to tell
you that my son was sentenced to LIFE even though he never had
a traffic ticket in his life. First offense, and he had a promising
career with the World Football/NFL league. He was convicted in
1994 and is still serving time in federal prison for conspiracy
to sell crack cocaine. There were no evidence of drugs and the
co-defendants took advantage of the "help yourself"
clause and got 5 years. Now, I'm not upholding any wrongs of
either of their parts but ENOUGH ALREADY! With the Sentencing
Commission reforming the crack laws, I pray for justice - as
a Mother I want my son to get the relief he deserves . Thank
you for all your hard work and dedication. - Sincerely, Ms.
A fellow inmate let me read several issues
of your Razor Wire publication and I felt like I had been
given a treasure. When I was arrested several months ago I vowed
to continue my activist lifestyle and believed there was much
work to be done in prison, but I wasn't sure how and where to
Your magazine provides me with many threads to follow up on and
a wealth of resources to discover. So please accept my subscription
fee and include me on your mailing list. I am looking forward
to your next publication. - Sincerely, John
I just want to thank you for your work
at the November Coalition. I feel the information that I obtain
from your organization is very important.
I write greeting cards for InsideOutz, a company that
sends cards to prisoners all over the world. When I read stuff
from your organization, it reinforces my reasons for trying to
help inmates. There are many who need personal support and the
support of society.
I will continue creating as I know my words are on the walls
of inmate's cells everywhere. Thanks for your indirect help and
encouragement. - Mark Morgan, www.InsideOutz.com
Hello Good People at the November Coalition,
I know that the holidays are coming. I'd like to do a small Mitzvah
project making handmade Holiday greeting cards to send to prisoners.
I looked up "prisoner pen pals" on the Internet and
most of the sites seemed to be either commercial or somewhat
sexual. Do you have a suggestion about how I could obtain addresses
without paying or getting involved with romantic overtures?
