Pampered Prisoners

Great and fiery debate going on in Southern California. State prisoners are not allowed to have cell phones. More than half of them do -- they're smuggled in by family and friends, traded aong prisoners and quite possible they're being sold by some of the guards.

It was proposed that all prisons install cell phone blocking devices (which will cost money and the State is broke.)

A guy wrote to the LA Times that accepting collect calls can add up to 20% more to your phone bill. (The horror.)

I have a novel idea -- how about they write letters! It's not like they don't have the time...
