I want to comment....
In response to a letter to the editor written by Logan Correctional inmate Tammy Eveans

To the editor:

I correspond with a number of women incarcerated for long sentences at Logan and have done so for three decades.

I endorse everything that Tammy Eveans, one of my correspondents, has said in her eloquently written letter.

Thank you for publishing it!

Rarely do prison inmates have the opportunity to address the public about the many injustices that they experience while imprisoned. She has drawn attention to an issue of profound importance to the welfare of her fellow inmates and their families and should be heard by the general public.

The supposed objective of incarceration besides punishment is to help inmates to improve their lives in preparation for eventual release. Maintaining close tries to family and friends is a vital part of rehabilitation.

[to top of second column in this letter]

This new plan negates that entirely.

I hope that Ms. Eveansí voice will be heard.
