    As Salaamu Alaikum!

    I am Editor-in-Chief of Prisonworld Magazine. I was wondering if you would like to advertise in our magazine. I am specifically targeting the kind that the prisoners have been requesting of me. Your book would be of an interest to our readers and your advertisement would be beneficial.

    I hope you will take a look at our site and get in touch with me. http://www.prisonworldmagazine.com Our readership base is growing every day. We service a very unique targeted audience and like to give our readers what they are looking for.

    We are filling ad spots for the September/October 2009 Issue. Our prices are better than competitive for the market share that we reach. With that said, our ad spots do fill quickly. We are running specials for our 1/4 and 1/2 page B&W and COLOR. Any new customers that establish a business relationship with us we give an even better deal.

    We also have a weekly radio show. You can check us out @ http://www.prisonworldradiohour.com. It would be great to have you on as a guest.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Dear Shafiq,

    I’m back from two months in France and first thing I read was your book that I ordered and was waiting for me in the mail.

    Today I thought of you in reading this:

    — The attorney for Johannes Mehserle, the former BART police officer convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Oscar Grant, released a handwritten letter today that Mehserle composed Sunday – four days before a Los Angeles jury came back with its verdict in the case.

    The full text of the letter released by defense attorney Michael Rains follows:

    Mike –

    Please try to get this message to the public:

    I don’t know what the jury in this case is going to decide, but I hope those who hate me and those who understand that I never intended to shoot Oscar Grant will listen to this message.

    I have and will continue to live everyday of my life knowing that Mr. Grant should not have been shot. I know a daughter has lost a father and a mother has lost a son. It saddens me knowing that my actions cost Mr. Grant his life, no words express how truly sorry I am.

    I hoped to talk to Ms. Johnson (Wanda Johnson, Grant’s mother) and Ms. Mesa (Sophina Mesa, Grant’s girlfriend and the mother of his daughter) in the days following this terrible event, but death threats toward my newly-born son, my friends and family resulted in no communication occurring. I hope the day will come when anger will give way to dialogue.

    For now, and forever I will live, breathe, sleep, and not sleep with the memory of Mr. Grant screaming “You shot me” and putting my hands on the bullet wound thinking the pressure would help while I kept telling him “You’ll be okay!” I tried to tell myself that maybe this shot would not be so serious, but I recall how sick I felt when Mr. Grant stopped talking, closed his eyes and seemed to change his breathing.

    I don’t expect that I can ever convince some individuals how sorry I am for the death of Mr. Grant, but I would not feel right if I didn’t explain my thoughts as I wait for a decision of the jury.

    Johannes Mehserle
