As promised I said I would come back after I asked my pen pal about the A/C and let you know what he said.
There is no A/C, tell that chic to kiss my...(well I won't finish what he said) Death row and ad seg have A/C, infirmary has A/C, visitation has A/C but general population does not. The only units that are is the unit for the crazies and the medical units. There is more about heat stroke but it wasn't very nice so I won't post it here.

So the part about the heat stroke wasn't nice enough to post, but the "tell that chic to kiss my..." was? Awesome logic you have.
So, basically what he said is that Polunsky, built in 1993, gives A/C to the "problem" inmates and doesn't give it to those who behave enough to be in general population. Right?
Every building at Polunsky is equipped with A/C. Whether or not they actually turn it on is another issue.
I'm sorry, but it looks to me like someone was reading the TDCJ FAQ, which states that only the psych units and hospitals have A/C. I would also like to say that the turn around time between the letter you were writing on the 28th and his response you received on the 5th is amazing, considering there was a Sunday and a holiday thrown into that 7-day span.
Not implying someone isn't being truthful here. I just find it.... interesting.
How about this: when I'm at Polunsky later in the month (should everything go according to plan), I'll ask someone who works there again.

I think you've hit the nail on the head.
'Having a/c equipment within a building' and 'switching the a/c on' are two completely different things. So whilst gen pop may not experience a/c in their areas, it doesn't mean that there is no a/c installation within that area.

If its 100+ Im sorry but i do feel worse for the staff who have to work in full uniform than the inmates. Sadly some inmates my ex included have a chip on their shoulder and think that the world is so unfair to them and waste time complaining about things instead of seeing the solutions to things. And as for saying tell this chick to kiss my .... makes me wonder what exactly you told him and makes me wonder if you think that its ok that he speaks like that about someone. Mountanddo give your pp some information on how to prevent heat stroke instead of fuelling his chip.
And you can say what you like about my choice of wording here but you/him opened that one up.
If you would like me to also scan the envelope to "prove" I got the response when I did I will do that too. I sent the JPay on 12:16:47am EST on the 29th, he got it the evening of the 29th and mailed it on the 2nd. I received it yesterday. Not that I have anything to prove to you. and kiss my *** is a lot nicer than quite a few things that you have said to people on this forum.
