Notable news and notes about prisons and prisoners

Winding my way around Google News this evening allowed me to come across this array of notable new stories about prisons and prisoners:

  • From the Chicago Tribune here, "They may call him 'gov,' but Blago is dishwasher in prison"

  • From the Los Angeles Times here, "California prisons detail plan to downsize, cut costs" ‎

  • From the New Orleans Times-Picayune here, "Justice Department accuses Orleans Parish sheriff of failing to improve jail"

  • From the Idaho Statesman here, "Grieving mom erects cross at Idaho prison gates"

  • From the Washington Post here, "Prison set Chuck Colson free"
