Holiday Letter From Max

PORN VALLEY—It's Holiday Season 2009, and many of the people who should be in prison—Joseph Cassano (A.I.G.), Lloyd Blankfein (Goldman Sachs), Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Antonin Scalia, Sens./Reps. Jim DeMint, Joe Lieberman, John Cornyn, Jon Kyle, Charles Grassley, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, Joe Barton, Joe Pitts, Mike Pence, Bart Stupak, Doug Coe (head of The Family), Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, lobbyist Dick Armey, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and many more—aren't, while some that are, shouldn't be.

So perhaps adult industry members and fans can take a few minutes to send some holiday cheerfulness to the fallen comrades who can't be with us to share the season's good will:

AVN did receive a letter from Paul "Max Hardcore" Little in today's mail, and he'd want us to share it with both his fans and his detractors:

"I'm pleased to report that all is as well as one could reasonably expect here at the La Tuna, New Mexico federal prison—an ancient facility built sometime during the days of the 'wild wild west.' That's good for me as I'm now an important team member of the construction brigade, whose job it is to keep this sprawling complex from crumbling to the ground. Unfortunately for those in charge of keeping the buildings erect and operational, we are paid only $5.25 a month, so we spend most of our time looking for ways to avoid any actual labor, instead of performing any productive repair work.

"Still no word on the status of my late October appeal, which can take up to six months to be decided. While we have a great case as prepared and presented by Jennifer Kinsley and Lou Sirkin, it will not be easy to reverse my convictions as courts tend to back each other up in most cases. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and a horse in a nearby barn on stand-by in case I win.

"Regardless of that, however, I'm already well ahead of schedule as I've been accepted into the residential drug and alcohol treatment program, which, when completed in several months, will gain me up to a year of time off. Barring my release upon appeal, that will put me back in business late next year. That's a long stretch for sure, but I'm already halfway done. And when I am finally released from this unlawful detention, I'll be in better shape both mentally and physically than I have been in many years, and more than ready to rock the world again.

"Since MSNBC has rebroadcast their special report, 'The Business of Pleasure,' numerous times on the local cable feed, I have become somewhat of a celebrity here at La Tuna. I'm happy to say that I enjoy the solid support of the inmates, most of whom are quite mystified as to why I was sent here. Few were aware that obscenity laws still existed, and when explained how they work, can't comprehend how making adult movies, no matter how 'hard-core,' justifies imprisoning the creator along with murderers, rapists, robbers and drug dealers. And at 46 months, I've actually got a longer sentence than some of the bank robbers here, who average between 40 and 52 months.

"I'm certainly not letting that bother me, though, as it would be very counter-productive towards gaining a positive experience from my time away from friends and family, out here as I am in the middle of the New Mexico desert.

"I am instead focusing on finding and developing the tools necessary to insure a peaceful and productive future for me and my company, as well as my very good friend Layla Rivera.

"That's all for now, my friends. Whatever else happens for you, I hope that 2010 is your best year yet!
