Making this as easy as possible, it will only take a few moments of your time, if most of us do this, it WILL make a difference.

Leonard's problem with his jaw is worsening, and dental problems (which have the potential to be fatal if not treated) cannot be treated until the jaw is. But he is caught in a catch-22: he needs to sign a medical release to get treatment; if he signs the release, the prison officials can decide WHO provides the treatment.

At the Peltier Rally in DC on Saturday (June 29, 1998) his attorney, Ramsey Clark, made a simple enough request: we should all send a brief letter to Kathleen Hawk, asking that the MAYO CLINIC be authorized to treat Leonard. I have the one liner he suggested below, all you need to do is print it on your printer, add your own name, address, then fax it or put it in an envelope, stamp it, and mail. Couldn't be easier. If you want to spend more time, the best story I've seen in awhile explaining it is posted at


Read it, print it, share it if you are able, but at very least, get this letter off to Kathleen Hawk TODAY.

Greetings Ms Hawk,
