I came into contact with Shane in 2003, very unexpectedly. A radio program on WBAI-FM (hosted by the late Al Lewis, "Grandpa" from the 1960's sitcom "The Munsters") invited listeners to send in a postcard with your name and address, so that an inmate might have the opportunity to correspond with someone on the outside for moral support. I sent in a postcard with my name and address, and 11 years later here we are, waiting for a judge's decision. This could never have been possible without the work of Robert Boyle, Doug Walters, and the support of many of what Shane calls "the team". Why not send a note of encouragement to Shane? It only takes a few minutes to do, and feels much better than playing with a smart phone or watching TV.
