what’s in a name: the department of corrections

You guys know this means jail, right? Is everyone clear on that point? I guess it’s quicker to say “Department of Corrections” than “Department of Locking People Up In Goddamn Prison” but it’s also completely dishonest.

“Corrections” are good for you. You were wrong, but now you’re right. If you want to find out how good prison is for people — maybe learn something about the ratio of problems it corrects to problems it creates — I recommend starting here.
