From T-Bone (Letter 39)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter:

I got into it with an extremely large fellow the other day. He was taking the store from a crazy guy called James. When James complained, the large fellow told him to suck his dick. When he went to play cards, I walked into his cell, took the store back and returned it to James.

The big guy sat there playing cards, like nothing had happened, and then rushed me in my cell. He had me against the wall, hitting my arms and legs. He was strong and he hit hard. I hadn’t fought anyone that hard since Lebanon.

I almost went down five times until an energy came over me – a power. I heard no other sounds or saw anything but him and his hand moving in slow motion. I grabbed his right hand with mine and pulled it across his throat. It’s called a lion tamer. I put an open hand strike into his solar plexus, let go of his right hand, ducked his next punch and countered with a right hand that knocked his jaw out of place.

While that was going on, two guys were beating up James. I ran down to James cell, pulled them off him, came back to my cell and once more my store had been stolen. I’d been set up, so they could take my food. 

Now I calculate my next move.

T-Bone,
Hang in there, and stay positive. Always think before you make your move. And don't lose to these guys, if you have to fight!!! Freedom is coming your way soon, as I understand it. And way to go, for standing up for James. :) May God bless you, Marine.
