Make That Biscuits AND Gravy, Mr. Sheriff

After asking myself the rhetorical question, "What kind of people are we?" upon reading the NYTimes editorial this a.m. on cutting prison food budgets, I noted that one crooked old boy sheriff from 'Bama is now serving a stretch in his own jail for pocketing $200,000 in food money. Seems the state allows sheriffs to keep the food budget dollars they don't spend.

My guess is that he invested the money in sherrif's belly futures, a shrinking portfolio in this case.


  1. Amy: Having eaten jail food (on several occasions), I don't know which is worst, the food or the starvation. I know which rots the soul, though.
