You can do what prison isn't! Either anonymously or with verification each month my progress! Consider these options: SCHOLARSHIP(s) – my IQ is above 140 and I love learning but I owe several thousand in pre-prison Stafford loans so no federal aid. Don't let my mind be wasted! LITIGATION BILLS – from suits seeking prison improvements, some of which I won injunctions but no money, I must pay over $10,000. Until it's paid all incoming money is taken so I can’t even buy deodorant, stamps, etc. for myself. READING MATERIAL – debts stop me from subscribing to the artistic, literary, scientific and legal periodicals I cherish. BASIC SUPPLIES – debts deny me carbon paper, hygiene items, some of which others can order for me from – 1-800-236-2611 or – 1-866-402-0644. POSTAGE – sending me packets of stamps is the simplest way anyone can help; must come from post office. Overseas correspondence – except those in the Netherlands – must provide me with an IRC or envelopes with US airmail embossed so I can reply. INTERNET RESEARCH – I can't do so myself and often need scientific, and medical or other info for litigation or essays I'm working on. You'll have a friend for life if you commit to help me with any of the above; questions welcome!

I was recently featured in an article in “The Atlantic” magazine. In the beginning of the article, which focused heavily on my current prison, the reporter said, “You don't arrive to Supermax before first obtaining a measure of infamy in the nation’s penal system.” I could only scratch my head. Me? Infamous? Surely there must be some mistake. But the description of the conditions within America's most famous prison were apt: harsh, cruel, desolate and unforgiving. I sit alone in a cell 24/7. I never talk to anyone. The guards are like sadistic children overseeing an anthill holding magnifying glasses with glee. How do I maintain my composure? Well for one, the wonderful people I've met through this website, and second, an unwavering belief that they can take my freedom, my possessions, my comfort and beat me, isolate me and mentally torture me but they can never take my dignity, grace, or hope for a better and brighter future. America's most famous prison has taught me much about the limits of human endurance, the ugly side of human nature and, best of all, has given me a clarity of mind necessary to secure a prosperous future. Many are broken by this place and I too have suffered greatly, but I've learned I am the master of my own destiny. My motto is now simple but profound: “Always Moving Forward.” The past is tragic and the present bleak but the future is ripe with endless possibilities.

Hey everybody I just finished reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” and thought I'd check in and update you on the latest happenings. Last night, I got into an argument with a crazy person. Get this -- he said that the reason so many Americans are overweight is because more women are using the birth control pill and estrogen from the pill is being released from their urine, flushed down the toilet, and not filtered from our water stream. So we end up drinking estrogen, which turns our bodies to fat. Well, a smarter inmate might have put on his headphones and ignored this lunatic, but I felt compelled to argue. Luckily after 10 minutes, the Stanley Cup Finals began -- go Kings-- and I had an excuse to politely tell crazy man to get lost. I believe he ended the argument with, “If you don't believe me look it up in the Bible,” which, coincidently, is how he ends all his arguments. I've been watching tons of sports. The NBA Finals has been great, and provides a good excuse to snack. I also read a book called “Miles to Go,” which I enjoyed. Another execution is coming up next month, which means another lockdown. Ugh. Well, the Boston vs. Miami game is about to start. I've got my Kool-Aid and tortilla chips ready to be consumed. Bye for now.

Being in here with basically nothing and feeling alone has really changed my outlook on life. The small things everyone takes for granted means so much to me and friendship means the world.

Hello Everyone! I hope that everything is going well for those of you who've taken the time to read this. Things here are as good as can be expected I suppose. I've been working as much as possible to stay busy. Beyond that I have just been working out and trying to stay on top of life, family, friends and various responsibilities outside of these walls. Things on the pen pal front are slow but I have actively committed myself to finding someone special. We'll see how that pans out and I will keep you posted. I admit that I have not had the best experiences with this but it's all a learning experience and I try to remain positive. Yes, I am still awaiting my prison transfer to Massachusetts. No update on that but it is what it is. Again I hope all is well and should anyone feel the need to drop me a line I will respond. Bye for now.

You would never think a place so full of people would be so lonely, but alone in this single-man cell I endure a lonely pain like no other. They say it's through our hardships and being apart one can measure our affection and compassion for one another and through our suffering we are made strong. But this life surrounded by razor-wired fences, 20-foot walls and gun towers is a life full of pain, sorrow, and loneliness, and can make the best of us go crazy in this darkness that’s so consuming. A life caged in like an animal day after day is a life of emptiness that I would never wish on anyone. Only my morning star, so beautiful, so full of life, passion, desire, kind, witty, loving and even wicked, can bring light into my life. Because a life without my morning star, is a life without you. Your beautiful smile, your loving heart, and your friendship. So will you be my morning star? I don't know if you’ll call it chance, destiny, or just your curiosity that helped you find your way to this site, but I hope you feel that deep need to reach out to me in this time when I need a friend the most. So write me directly, send some photos, and thank you, thank you for existing. With The Utmost Respect, Cisco

New picture, a picture I called my “Reflection.” Taking this pose showed behind me as my struggle, and in front of me my accomplished prize. I wish I could laugh and say I made it but I can't. Life took a tragic detour. Now let me apologize to those I’ve offended, or said something foolish to. I'm new at this. When I was young my mom said, “Never say you're sorry, because I didn't raise no sorry children.” Against my better judgment I've always been sorry at speaking to women, all my life. Now behind bars seeking a friend I'm no better. I'm still shy, goofy and sometimes soft. I'm sorry, I'm just excited by beauty. Alright my confession is made and I'm still waiting to hear from you. -Happy Holidays-

I feel such an intense loneliness in this place. I need people in my life that won't give up on me. I'm getting tired of people writing and forgetting about me. If you're not serious about getting to know me then don't write at all. I can't afford to be wasting stamps I don't have on others that don't write back. Anyone can donate $ to me at Also, I talk about Facebook a lot because I have a prayer and support group. I need supportive people on there, not jealous people. I wish there was someone that can do internet searches and print things for me. Also, I collect pictures on postcards of nature, cities, and sunsets. I feel so out of touch in this place. Is there anyone in Southern California that can visit me on a regular basis, and let me call them collect? I don't get regular visits. My family visits a few times a year. My brother, sister, nieces and nephew rarely write. I can't even call them collect. I miss them so much. Can anyone order me some books? I like books from and I just need something to do to pass the time away because when I'm bored I think a lot. Then I think depressing things, like wondering if I'll ever go home or if my family will forget about me. Someone please write me nice long letters. I need some mail please! xoxo

Friends: I am a very happy and healthy man, notwithstanding a wrongful conviction, and while I do not intend to address this here, one can simply watch the evening news, as almost every day someone is found not guilty after serving a long prison sentence. Dear friends, be not deceived, for blessings truly are sometimes hidden in curses, and within misfortune good fortune hides! I am blessed to have had a wonderful mother, who taught me to give thanks in all situations! And because I have; many special things have been given me. Ask yourself, what does it profit, to gain every material thing, yet never gain the knowledge of one's self!? Tragic indeed! Unfortunately, life is such that we must toil to earn a living, and more often than not, the deeper things of life escape us. It is sad that so much of ourselves goes undiscovered by us. And so I am eternally grateful for this time in which to discover the deepest recesses of myself. We really are strangely and wonderfully made! Dear reader, would that you had the time that I have to search yourself; and the myriads of ancient texts, that tell of me and you. What fascinating beings we are! Friends. If we can get to know ourselves; that there is a sovereign power, an authority that is absolutely within ourselves, then we can be resurrected, and rise, irrespective of what the world thinks. One Love, Ricky a.k.a. Rico

Not sure why I'm not getting any mail from anyone out there...?!? I've been on this website for a while and it seems like my Ad has completely disappeared from the site! I know it's getting LONELY! So I'm taking a shot with this blog -- maybe I can get some attention/exposure!!! Guess I shouldn't have turned down that TV interview last summer... THAT would have surely gotten me some attention. (LOL) I'm here fighting for through this darkness, doing my best to stay upbeat and positive. Never giving up. I'm a soldier so I will always continue to fight in life, against all odds. I'm housed in Ad-Seg, it's solitary confinement -- exactly like DEATH ROW inmates are housed, with the difference being -- I HAVE NEVER BEEN CHARGED WITH OR CONVICTED OF A VIOLENT CRIME IN MY WHOLE LIFE!!!!!!!! It's crazy, huh! So, being locked down basically 24/7 gets lonely. I just keep looking forward to my release and being free again. Again... I don't understand why I'm not receiving any responses from my Ad??? Surely I'm not that hard on the eyes -- am I? Jeez... cut me some slack here... lol. I welcome ANYBODY who is honest and genuine. Sincere. Feel free to write. I'll go ahead and close this here with hopes of reaching someone who will write and shine some light into my darkness as. As ever... Blue Eyes... Anthony M. Montgomery
