You're not allowed to sit next to a person of a different race at the Rincon Prison

Dear Ganesh,

Iím sorry it took me so long to write you, but they did not let me transfer any of my belongings from jail, and it took some time to obtain paper, pen, envelopes and stamps.

This will be my home for the next five months. My cellmate is not so fortunate. He is doing life for two murders. I am at the Rincon Unit. It is a level four security yard. Apparently since I pulled a gun in the presence of the police they consider me to merit a high security classification.

The food here is much better than that at the jail. We also get two hours of outdoor recreation three times a week. I have access to a library every two to three weeks.

They have many rules to observe, most dictated by the inmates. One is that one is not to sit next to people of a different race in the dining hall or in the recreation field.

I am only a mile away from Laro, but I canít communicate with him. Let him know I wish him the best.
