Just another (average?) week in incarceration nation...

with Lindsay Lohan entering jail apparently for only two weeks, and Lord Conrad Black getting to go free on bail from federal prison after having already served well over two years.   Anyone want to make predictions on likelihood of recidivism for these two notable defendants?

Black is British. If we deport him, his recidivism will be 0.

How could Black "recidivize" if SCOTUS has held that the conduct for which he was convicted wasn't criminal?

Lohan: 90%.

Black: 0.9%.
