Go To Prison, Get A Flat-Screen TV

Most people assume that when you go to prison, you deserve some level of punishment.

Not true in Oregon.

There, you get to watch flat-screen TVs in your cell. If you're good, and you've earned it, according to prison officials there. They claim relegating prisoners to their cells instead of the common TV room cuts down on violence.

But, the prisoners who get the flat-screen TVs are basically trustys. Did I miss something?

Most people, including me, do not yet have a flat-screen TV at home.

Maybe I need to go to prison to watch one. Nah.
