Welcome to Super Friends

Welcome to Super Friends.

This is still Whit's blog. It was interrupted by his suicide at USP Terre Haute. If you are visiting here for the first time, I hope you will take the time to read his actual blog, and be witness to what he experienced. The entries begin in the folder named "2008" (see "Archive" at right). Click on the arrow to show "November" and "December," and then on the month to open all entries for that month. Scroll down to the bottom and read up to follow them in chronological order. Repeat for 2009.

I welcome contact and comments. You can write me directly at And if you'd like a PDF file of the blog - which is simpler to read than the full online version and which you can keep for reading over again or passing along - just let me know.

And finally, consider ordering the book "Super Friends" from Amazon. I published it, but it's really Whit's and my book. It contains Whit's full blog along with letters he and I wrote to each other interleaved with the blog entries. Also some background chapters and a lot of additional material. I donate all proceeds from sales of the book to Prison Writers, an organization that publishes (online) writing by inmates around the country in both the federal and state systems. They have also been gracious enough to publish a number of Whit's blog pieces.
