we were just having a convo about this elsewhere in relationship to the war on drugs, rising prison population, and doug piece on jails and jobs, which i had forwarded as a good example of left scholarship (kiss kiss; doug i also shilled for you at teachsoc the other day. i think we need to talk some kind of bonus here :). so michael, i think a participant in the convo would find this interesting. do you have any pointes as to where i could find out more about this, as well as about the privatization of prisons issue?
