From the prison industrial front...

I had the pleasure of spending the day in a maximum security facility today--in Graterford PA. It was amazing--long tiers of cells, men in the yard.

More on that soon. Meanwhile:

"If the Will County Jail expansion opens in 2008 as planned, its inmate population is likely to reach capacity the very same year, county officials acknowledged Monday. Officials also confirmed that they have yet to figure out how to pay the extra $8 million or more a year the larger jail will cost to run. As a result, planning for yet another jail addition is likely to get under way soon after the expansion opens, and voters could be asked if a new sales tax is needed to pay for day-to-day operations, officials said."
