    I'm guessing Puffy has spent plenty of time in the gray-bar motel.

    I'd bet RFS had spent some time in the joint. Casting lots for cigarettes and what not.

    Unless they are working on a degree, I'm not sure many really have unlimited internet access. I have a friend who used to tutor inmates, and they were not even allowed to use real pencils.

    It's highly unusual in the U.S. but it does occur. http://www.topix.com/forum/city/schu...4916SDIKLB85NM

    So they can look up information on breaking out of prison.

    And porn, of course. But surely their internet must be filtered, which we all know works. Right?

    Books are extremely hard to come by in prisons. There is almost no budget for them, so jails rely on donations (Books Behind Bars is one of the biggest organizations). But, unsurprisingly, prisons are not the first charity people think of when they want to give old books away, nor the most appealing for many.

    Books are also more difficult to control in prison, especially high-security facilities. There are places to hide dangerous things in books and there is not staff to review every bit of all reading material that comes in, whereas internet usage can be regulated and moderated. You may not like them having access, but in some cases it's actually a safety precaution.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I'm in the joint 8 hours a day. The THUGS (Temporarily Housed Under Gov't Supervision) who reside there do not have any internet access.

    I work at a federal institution and if inmates have internet access it isn't at the federal level.

    Does being on a chain gang count as working at a federal institution?
