And so, Mr. Kemp, now that you are back
to writing so beautifully, would you please
tell me, in writing, why you surrendered 
to that jail without first consulting your
Counsel, and why you fell totally silent
after your Counsel, and a Habeas Corpus
expert, both busted their butts to keep you out
of jail?  and why you never ever so much
as thanked either of them for all that work?
and why you have done absolutely nothing
whatsoever to pay them for that Habeas Corpus,
which you have now failed to litigate?

Will you please answer these questions,
in writing, Mr. Kemp?

Thank you.  I am waiting for answers that
can only come from you.

/s/ Paul Mitchell
