Not just that, Ebbie. Also...facedown in the alleyway, on yer knees in fronta the john, swimming upward from a rapidly sinking snowmobile that just went through thin ice, from the back of a police cruiser, lying on a filthy and sheetless mattress in a strange room you don't remember next to the ugliest woman(?) you've ever seen or even imagined, nekkid and totally lost in the woods amongst 25 million ravenous mosquitoes, barreling down the highway half-nekkid in a "borrowed" beer truck with the cops hot in pursuit...


But, yes, I think Shane is writing his book while in the Joint. That will help generate interest and public sympathy, a la Hurricane Carter, Eldridge Cleaver, Leonard Peltier, Nelson Mandela, etc. This is how Shane sees it. He is a societal martyr, condemned to an unjust fate by organized tyrrany and politically motivated profiling.
