I can share the little bit of news I have about Tom’s condition.
An official at ADX informed me (after I exasperatedly asked if Tom were still alive) that, yes, he is still alive. That was the full extent of the information provided by ADX!
I have learned from other sources that Tom is receiving his mail, wherever he may be located.
Consequently, I ask that anyone reading this note take the time to write to Tom and express your support and prayers.
I truly wish that I had more news to offer readers. I will continue to ask BOP and ADX officials for specific information, but I do not feel optimistic about their responses.
For the record, such treatment of Tom and of those concerned about him has far too many resemblances to that meted out by totalitarian regimes.
