Marty

Martin Russell Sullivan was a rare blend of humor and gentleman. May the wild eyed Nazi skin head who shot him dead forever rot in the hell hole he so richly deserved.

No, not dead. Recently came up for parole; that won't happen. I think he's in the Marion Fed Pen. Wherever; stay there. Your poetry has something above and beyond.

August 6, 1993, but yesterday to me. It's on the Net. Google Martin Sullivan & Jonathan Haynes. Thank you for taking note.

Marty and I worked closely; like a father to me. Jonathan Haynes shot him; sentenced to death, but our governor 'commuted' all in our state. At least he'll die inside.
