This Won't End Well At All

Twenty-three thousand inmates at 36 Texas prisons are now getting only two meals a day on weekends.

Now, that may not sound like that much of a hardship, but people who are in the corrections field tell me that about 90% of disturbances in a prison start over the food - how much is served, what's served, and the quality of the food.

The Texas Democrat who proposed it suggested the standard boilerplate response - if the inmates don't like it, they need to stay out of prison.

I suppose that means that if a riot breaks out, he'd be glad to go down to the prison and share his philosophy with the inmates.

Just what the fuck is it with Texas?
