Re: New mail procedures?
I think you're still going to have to include the address regardless.

It has a feeling of vindictiveness to me, nothing to do with security whatsoever: giving an inmate a photocopy of a colour photograph of his wife and children? Or a photocopy of that piece of art his two year old just completed?
And who is going to pay for all the copying? The costs are not going to be small, even if they do limit the number of pages or items allowed for each inmate.
