    enough and brave enough and fighting enough for peace and justice to get thrown in Solitary for having monks drum and chant for me. I've got 18 years to go to get there. May I and all the rest of you make it that far so we could emulate Bichsel.

    Nobody should be in solitary. And nobody who is ill should be put in solitary. And nobody in his/her 80's should be in solitary. And nobody should be in solitary for these "reasons." The problem is that as long as there is solitary, this kind of abuse can continue.

    Bichsel is unquestionably a hero. And he should be released right now. FFS. This kind of brutal, stupid treatment exposes the kind of Gulags the US is running here and abroad. Bichsel gets credit and praise for continuing to expose it.

    Please read and enjoy my second novella, Tulum, available in soft cover and eBook formats.
