Was just listening to Johnny Cash singing San Quentin; remember it well. Was an inmate there at the time he recorded his San Quentin album. Celebrated my 40th year being free from San Quentin last month. I remember being told, you will be back. Thank God, I didn’t go back. Still remember my number B-11097. You can make it if you try.

Dear Sirs; Today I just read the tribute to deceased inmate. Joe Diggs, that appeared in the March/April 2011 edition of the San Quentin News. I read the issue on line here in Tempe AZ. I have represented Joe since 2004 in a long and bitter fight to get recognized by the VA for his disabling condition. We were never successful, but Joe never gave up.
The article about Joe Diggs was great. It was really well written and it treated him with dignity and respect, something the VA never did. It made me proud to have known him. Thank you for printing it.
