Michael Alig Still in Prison, Still Hoping for Parole

Old compadre Steve Lewis makes the pilgrimage: "Michael is sick. He’s having problems with nerves which are becoming increasingly deadened. Prisons don’t provide much in the way of medical care. Mike’s been in a dozen years, and cell phones and computers and the way we talk and act has all changed while he counts minutes locked in a small room. I told Mike that he would never be allowed to forget what he did, and that he mustn’t even try. He will get out with many years left, and I hope I can point him in the right direction. When I was walking out of the visiting room, I watched him clean the table where we sat, and I saw how little he has to cling to, to hope for." [Blackbook]
