7/27/09. A descent into the bowels of the modern prison --- chaos, delusions, disorganization, violence...and the discipline required to run such institutions.

Monday Quotations


Capitalism undoubtedly has certain boils and blotches upon it, but has it as many as government? Has it as many as marriage? Has it as many as religion? I doubt it. It is the only basic institution of modern man that shows any genuine health and vigor.

--- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)

A perpetual holiday is a good working definition of hell.

A lifetime of happiness! No man alive could bear it: it would be hell on earth.

--- George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)
