    If only we could find a continent upon which to dump those who are unable to live by the laws. You're right, though; the fact of the matter is that segregation from the free world is required, and so we have prisons. If Blago's going to a minimum-security "Club Fed"-type cage, he'll be lucky.

    I don't think that cages are "barbaric" by definition. They're a time-out for big boys and girls who have been very, very naughty. We physically control our children's "human rights" too, you know. The point of a time-out is isolation and deprivation of privileges.

    If you can't control yourself, you have to removed from the functioning society for the good of all, including you. I like to think of prison time as an opportunity for significant personal growth. And it really is for many, particularly those who decide to complete their GEDs or their college degrees or who learn a trade. The recidivism rate drops when these personal accomplishments are achieved, and this benefits society too.

    Blago has been bad, very bad. A time of quiet reflection will be good for him.
    Picking up litter along our fine highways for 20 years will give Gov-Blag plenty of time to think and reflect.
    A time back, there was a prison that allowed NO noise, no talking...only penitence...hence penitentiary...
    a good concept ??
