09:22 UK time, Friday, 8 January 2010

"Many readers will be aware that I am at the moment a guest of the United
States. This is not a country club but life here is not uncivilised and has its

- Conrad Black on life in a Florida prison.

In British newspapers he is still usually "Lord Black", but to the Federal Bureau of Prisons he is merely Conrad M Black or prisoner number 18330-424, an inmate at Federal Correctional Institution Coleman Low. Black wants Spectator readers to know he is OK. Anyone with a green card and an interest in rehabilitating criminals may want to know that FCI Coleman is urgently hiring correctional officers.
