HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May this be your last Birthday in isolation! When the authorities forget your past I will. Until then I will post the events that forced your hand so the world might come a bit closer to understanding your actions. Not even today's transparent attempt at burying the facts will prevent that. I will cease when "you" decide it is time to call it quits!

Hope all is well or at least is getting better, Tommy.

I was introduced to you through a documentary in which you were mentioned-and your art. I've always showed interest in the art of inmates, those are one of the most honest works. Inmates have much less to loose then people on the outside so the works they produce are much more honest and reflective, unlike the art here which is all done for a dollar. So i decided to look it up and came across your site to find that you also communicate with people through it. My mind is a little bit puzzled right now so let me state that i'm inspired by your art and look forward to seeing more of it. So i got to ask if you are working on more drawings and are they allowing you to paint-if you ever considered exploring that medium? Although i can see how they can make that a security issue, as always. Another thing i found is how you don't seem to be recentful or hateful towards all the accusers. I always thought one can learn a lot from inmates and people of solitude, whether it be society inflicted or spiritual, although both often coincide. I learned to draw something positive from, a lesson of some kind, anyone and inmates have inspired me for a few things, as strange as it may sound to the people outside. Hopefully through you i can learn how to be forgiving of other people. I have(had) someone in my life and i say that in present tense, because the only reason that person is still present in my life is through my negative feelings. So i want to ask you Tommy, how do you deal with it when someone to whom you've given your all and but they disregard all your commitment and turn their backs on you? How do you not despise that person? I can forgive and not be bothered pretty much by anything or anyone but disloyalty is one thing i can't move past? How do you do it? But i guess we ought not to forget that those who anger us, control us.

I also meant to ask what has your excercise routine been in that cruel system? i'm trying to get faster and stronger. I've been regularly doing calisthenics and it's working really well, just curious to see what you have done because you appear to be in a good physical shape in the pictures. Also, just curious if you've read Charles Bronson's book Solitary Fitness? It's interesting.

As far as your naysayers go...there's really not much to say, you either take your time and understand someone or you don't. Nowadays in our generation not many people have to fight for their life or honor especially. In school they teach us to run to the office and when we grow up to dial 911. People no longer know how to deal with one another 'cept through lawyers and courts, they can't even give a firm handshake anymore, haha. So, i don't see why they try to judge you and the choices you were faced with in the prison world. Those people that judge you are the ones who take for granted the simple things they can enjoy on the outside, such as going for a run or enjoying the solitude of nature or even freedoms like to eat the foods of their choice but instead they lock themselves in the world of pointless yupping on line, casting judgements on message boards instead of using the computer to learn and grow.

Sorry if i've gone on for too long and asked you too many questions. Even if you just read this, i'm greatfull but a response is appreciated I'm looking forward to learning more from your wisdom.

I just wanted to write and tell Tommy that there are people like me out there who are making a career out of helping people like him. Im currently an undergrad for psychology but I want to get into being a prison psychologist. I have a huge heart and a lot of compassion for people who are incarcerated and want to make a difference in their world. Just wanted to say I am astonished that this has gone on for so so long. Too long. I believe in rehabilitation not incarceration. I had the opportunity to visit Graterford State Penitentiary here in PA and met with 4 men serving life sentences. I have to tell you, you remind me of them. I've never spoken to such well adjusted men in my life, considering the circumstances. Just keep your head up and if there is anything I can do to help you please let me know. Also, I was looking up some books on prison psychology and or working with inmates. Are there any books you can recommend through your years in prison that will help me learn? Again, keep your head up, with this website out there Im sure you've had a lot of support. I know I wouldn't have made it as long as you have. You're a strong person and you'll make it

Hey, Tom! Remember me? Helen Keller Elementary & DeMille Jr. High. Listening to Rolling Stones albums backwords for the secret messages. The great pool at your mom's house. The red-headed kid, David...Can't remember his last name. Do you remember? Haven't been to any of the class reunions. Don't really want to see those people. Well, tell me about you, if you can.

Dear TS,

I'm glad you finally found someone to read my later to you because I seriously don't an idiot like you can read. No I don't know you but I know the cloth you are cut from.

I consider a low life is one who murders, sell drugs and belong to a criminal enterprise. So the shoe fits you put it on.

I couldn't say the name of the joint I was in because your moderator BJ has made that against the rules of the forum you idiot. I knew you couldn't read. When I say first hand I was referring to incidents where people got done in or worker over on your oders. Cone on now you know how info is acquired on the inside when your trying to climb the ladder. Don't play dumber than you are.

"Reveal my true identity"?? What true identity What am I super hero who turns into another person by day and change at night???

I can't name any names because again your moderator BJ doesn't allow that. You deny my claim of ill gotten gains you know for a fact what you have been apart of I don't have to list anything.

As far as those you have manipulated I know of countless women for instance who are doing time because of the favors they did for the _ _ things like trying to smuggle dope into the joint, etc.

Tommy your a bad person and have been one for a long time. You're getting exactly what you deserve well not really you deserve the chair you got yourself in this predicament now deal with it.

I did about eleven years inside up here in the Great White North, and I know exactly what the prison INDUSTRY is capable of. But I cannot believe what they have gotten away with in your case! Torture, pure and simple. As for the moving you in with the lowlife PCs, that's sleazy, even for BOP. Nice to see you also have lots of internet toughs flapping their gums at you from the safety of their computers, but that's to be expected. Anyhow, much respect, Tommy, and stay strong. Like I always say,
