Collage art that came enclosed with Cary Safarian's letter.
An interesting item came by post yesterday: a genuine letter from former Graystone Hall promoter Cary Safarian. You may recall our piece; on the fundraiser that had hoped to come up with money to support and a bid for clemency on behalf of MDOC Prisoner 207905;. Well, the letter has all the usual bad news and more. For a copy of the full correspondence, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, but here’s the juicy stuff, as well as a glimpse of some of his prison-made art (see above).
I read your article on my benefit show at the Miami. Thanks for publicizing it and giving some background as to who I am and what the whole thing was about. I had to smile when I read some of the anecdotal history of the Graystone. Where did you get your information? I want to say that some of the stories were exaggerated, but not too much. I especially liked the description of me as a “Bluto-like fireplug.” Really!
