    can ever really do the job because they've never really been there. I won't believe them regarding this story because I know that they don't know. On the other hand, you and I both know that Mr. Peltier was absolutely responsible for what he did with any contraband currency (if he actually ever did anything) and for any alterations to the wiring of the cell (if there really were any). Those are standard rules that both sides definitely understand.

    As for your situation, yeah, whatever you say. Except that you're trying to make it sound like you walked in the shoes of Mr. Peltier, and that's clearly not true, or you and he would clearly still be walking in lockstep.

    As for where I was at, and what I did there, and what I did to get there, you don't have a clue because you didn't do my time. And I didn't do yours either.

    But I'd really like to know what's actually going on here, brcause two of the people who don't know are you and me.

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
