The New York Times reports on Prison Marriage Classes
Make no mistake about it--classes in prisons are good.
But really...HELLO??? Am I in Alice in Wonderland here?
These same imbeciles who have been advocating for long punitive sentences, who have slashed prison programing, have refused to offer inmates access to higher education, these same assholes now want to teach marriage skills to the guys they've sent away for life who can't even touch the women to whom they're supposedly married. All this while refusing to distribute condoms in prison to prevent AIDS, failing to address the persistent problem of prison rape, callously attempting to cut social work support and employment training, whitewashing abominable prison hospital conditions...
Oh spare me this moronic idea.
