Hey cpo357, ya know I always thought the working man was a sucker, weak even, then when I got out of the jint and had to get a job I got a whole new respect for the working man, weak my behind it takes real toughness to get up every morning and go to a job, I did it for five years and thought it was going to kill me, anyway I am just about finished with my new book, the title is "The Price We Pay" it is being published by Random House. you have my email address which is right in this post send me a kite and I will send you my phone number, I have to change my cell number and don't know what thew new one will be but I have another and a land line, would really like to kick it with you, bogards I will send you my new number and my landline one in a few minutes.
