A mail mess

A report of continued mail problems at Women's Huron Valley: "I have received 4 pieces of mail recently that were so old - two letters were dated April 7th and I just received them on December 3rd. And yesterday I received two pieces of mail - one was a Valentine from last February and the other was a birthday card from May. Shameful. I sent all this mail to the Warden. Also, I received some mail and in the same envelope with that mail was mail for another prisoner. And, when they photocopied a 5-page letter that a friend sent to me, they forgot to photocopy the first page and instead photocopied page 3 twice. These new mail restrictions are a nightmare."
