My e-mail is always full, but I check everything. For my generation, staying connected is both a way of life and an easy task. I don’t expect older generations to have a similar stance, and I would never expect the US prison system to veer from snail mail. But it has.
On a regular basis, I’ll see another piece of email. It looks like spam. But it’s not spam. It’s my father sending me a message from prison:
“Hey Antone! I just wanted to tell you that I love you.”
He was granted access to email via a third-party service supplied by the prison. The idea is a good one, and it’s easier than mail — obviously. That helps lazy sons like me…and I love it!
