"RAMSEY the Klown".....4 page fliers to be distributed this Sat. in Boulder, CO; N.Y.C.; S.F., CA; and ATLANTA, GA.........(This version of the flier has been edited to be distributed to YOU via the internet.)
It's me, Lance Matthews. This flier is my Christmas gift to my friend J.T.Colfax aka James
Thompson. You will read about his plight in "The Sorry Saga of J.T.Colfax" @;
He wanted me to give this to YOU.
He would would LOVE your response on his situation and your opinion on The Ramsey Case; (innocent/guilty.)
His Past art projects have been written about in such papers as, The Washington Post, June 25th,
95; The Philadelphia Inquirer, April 9th, 95; N.Y.Newsday and the N.Y.Post in Oct. 94; The Wall
Street Journal Oct. 24th or 25th, 94; and in many others. He is an artist who's chosen media is
James is, in my opinion, one of the most prolific writers of our time. You can read his daily diary
pages on his web site, or on The Boulder News, JonBenet Ramsey murder forum; (Boulder News Forum
He is currently incarcerated in the Boulder County Jail for shoving a few pieces of lit paper through
the mail slot of the vacant Ramsey house (damage = a small impingement on the floorboards) He also stole
a page from the Boulder morgue log containing the entree of JonBenet's. He received two years for
these stunts.(Oh yeah, he was also written about for taking photos of corpses with whimsical signs on
them, like "Happy Halloween" and "Getting Fired isn't the end of the world".) James is currenty the first inmate to have a daily presence and participation in a opinion forum on the internet.
My Christmas gift from me to him is to e-mail to you these pages and ask you;
1. to tell a friend, visit his web site, e-mail him.(All of his e-mail is relayed by me and he will respond to ALL inquiries.).
2. to PLEASE write him your opinion. Just take five minutes out of your day and scribble him a note, a thought, your opinion on life....anything. You don't need to write a return address on the envelope..........It is only 32cents and a moment of your time.
