My name is Paddy Mitchell, I’m from Ottawa, Canada, and I’m currently serving a very long sentence in an American penitentiary for bank robbery.
In 2006 I was diagnosed with lung cancer, which has spread to my brain. I’m now undergoing treatment. I’m also trying to get transferred to a Canadian penitentiary under the Federal Prisoner Exchange Treaty.
I don’t have email or internet access in prison, so I’m using this technology with the help of others. I write the blog entries by hand and snail-mail them to Susan and Lynda in Canada, who enter them onto the blog for me. They print your comments and snail-mail them to me. It’s a low-tech high-tech thing.
This blog replaces the Guestbook and Paddy’s Replies on my website: www.paddymitchell.com. But I’ll leave those archived on the site for sentimental and historical reasons, since there are hundreds of entries there.
I love reading and responding to comments and questions, so please don’t be shy about leaving comments on the blog. You can also write to me at:
