    oh man I wish I had time for all these prisoner grievances but I’m too busy writing this book of questionable importance!

    I went ahead and bought the book. When I was in the Reserves, one of our unit members worked at the USDB and arranged for a tour. It is a fascinating place with and equally interesting history. I look forward to getting it.
