Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

IN THE END ZONE

A Georgia prison warden is hoping an all-out blitz for satellite television will convince prison officials that Monday Night Football can be used as a management tool for inmates.



Warden Frank Taylor of the Clayton County Correctional Institution in Atlanta is asking for funds to bring direct satellite services to the facility to keep his 226 inmates in line.

Taylor claims 90 percent of the prisoners would be occupied watching the football games instead of the two fuzzy stations that are now in the five dormitories.

Uh, "occupied" ... why does "sudden death" come to mind?

I'd like satellite TV, too but trying to cut back on extra bills. They're lucky they even have a "fuzzy" TV as privileges. Someone really dropped the ball on this issue! Penalty.. (some on Death Row may cringe at that). Do the fellas on Death Row get to choose their favorite cable show or Pay-Per-View Movie with their last meal?

they're in JAIL, they shouldn't have any privileges.
