If you got the feeling that something very bad has happened to RM regarding his sudden & lengthy disappearence, your intuition is strong. on aug 20 2008, RM became political prisoner #400,001. As per his usual nature, this isn't something to keep secret, he just wants anyone concerned to know the ugly truth, which is always better than pretty lies. he,s been charged with a 20 year felony on a victimless crime, locked up with no internet access. he hopes to plead it down and be a free man in a very unfree country, much sooner than that.
