New York Times on the Tankleff Case

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

There’s an important article about the Martin Tankleff case in today’s New York Times.

I hope and pray that Andrew Cuomo is not appointed to Hillary’s seat. I consider him morally unfit for public office.

New Book About the Tankleff Case

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

I discovered on the Marty Tankleff blog that a book about the case will be relased on Tuesday. I wish it much success!

On another note, Bee’s friend David came home from the hospital on Tuesday and is doing well.


Lou Piccone — Case Dismissed

Friday, December 26th, 2008

This article appeared in today’s Berkshire Eagle. This time the bullies who run Berkshire County (and DSS) picked on someone who had the means and will to fight back.

I know that Lou is determined to fight on against the corruption that poisons our legal and child-protection systems. I wish him every success.

Operation Successful

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

Dear Friend of Justice,

I spoke with Bee a little while ago. Yesterday his partner David had the follow-up surgery to reattach his colon. The operation went very well and David’s prognosis is excellent. He may even be home for Christmas.

The past four months have been very difficult for Bee and David. So this is good news.

Now if only the Appeals Court would uphold his new-trial motion soon. I will keep you posted.

Invite a Friend to Subscribe

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Dear Friend of Justice,

When I switched from the mailing list to this blog, I lost a number of subscribers. Perhaps some of them no longer wished to follow these issues. I have no problem with that.

But I would like to reach a few more people. Do you know someone who might be interested? If so, please send them the address of the blog and invite them to subscribe.

Many Thanks,

Bob Chatelle

Paul Litchfield's Birthday

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Dear Friend of Justice,

I recently posted an entry suggesting that people send a sympathy card to Paul Litchfield, who recently lost his sister. Another sister, Robin, emailed me to add that this coming Friday (December 12th) is also Paul’s birthday. So you may want to send a birthday card as well.

Paul’s address is:

Paul Litchfield
NCCI Gardner
POB 466

Remember A Prisoner This Holiday Season

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

December is the darkest month of the year. It is especially dark for those cut off from the world behind prison walls.

Please consider sending a card to one or more prisoners. If you don’t know any, you may consult this list. If you spot errors in the list, email me and I will make the correction. You may also inform me of the correction with a comment.

I have also posted a page about my home town, Aitkin, Minnesota. If you have some time to kill and are curious about my roots, I invite you to read it.

Happy Holidays!
