Tliere are some guys tlial iiotlTin's go-iiiq to touch, but you've got to admire him." added Barker, who hopes to be paroled next year and is planning to trj' for a pro boxing career. "I don't come here to preach to them," saj's Lyle. "I don't tell them what they should do and they don't tell me. We just talk about what's going on in the free world and about girls. We just ti7 to enjoy each other's company."
