Peace of Mind and Clarity of Thought

Amy Alkon, a Jewish atheist (if there can be such a thing) and a fairly prominent writer, wrote to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff in prison. And he wrote her back. She posts about it, on her blog.
He's right, Amy. You do seem full of hatred. What kind of person writes to someone who is in prison (for non-violent crimes, no less) and says "You're why people hate Jews"?
People who are in prison should be corresponded with nicely, or not at all. That's not because someday they might be let out and track you down. It's because it is the right thing to do.
