Hi Shaun,

Just discovered your blog and your story recently, and read all the way through from the beginning in a few days. I've had a very bad week and your stories have proven an excellent focal point to distract me from the bad vibes with a good old fashioned dose of escapism. I've noticed a lot of your regulars encouraging you to write a movie, and I think they're right. There's something about the way you write that puts me in mind of the silver screen.

Anyway, the reason I decided to post is because I went for this giveaway and was informed by email earlier today that I'll soon be receiving a copy of Hard Time in the post! Perhaps this week will be better, eh?

I should also mention that although I was dimly aware of Sheriff Arpaio before I read your story, I was unprepared for the shock of how bad his reign of terror really is. I have always been a supporter of prisoner's rights, and this is the kind of issue that makes my blood boil. What's truly sickening is how his supporters can stand by him, right wing patriots to a man, while he spits on their constitution.

In my most cynical moments I can't help but think that far too much of the US is in the grip of elderly, angry, right wing racist white men like Joe Arpaio. Year after year it seems we find ourselves more and more simply unable to do anything except wait for them simply to die of old age and hope the next guy isn't such a bastard.

Of course the problem with Sheriff Joe is that being in the position of power that he is, his army of staff have grown accustomed to the greed and corruption. He has sown the seeds of corruption throughout the entire Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. Assuming the next man or woman to take office is of pure intention, they will still face an uphill struggle against all the lazy, corrupt and resentful deputies, aides and correctional officers who wish for a return to the status quo when they could kick illegal immigrants in the face for entertainment.

Anyway, I think I've said my piece for now. Shaun, you're doing a great thing here. What you are doing is truly good work. Keep on keeping on, and this one is for you, Jack, T-Bone, Warrior, Xena and all the other people you've encountered who are doing their best to be their best - keep fighting the good fight.

For T-Bone, who is going through hard times right now - "don't let the bastards grind you down." I'm sure Shaun knows the reference :)
