"California alone spends $8.8 billion a year on its imprisoned population ó a 216% increase over what it paid 20 years ago, even after adjusting for inflation."

"Thatís money, of course, that canít be spent on schools, on job training, on wage supports and drug treatment."

"And thereís nothing funny about that."

TY, Town.
