I don't know if it is that website or what but I can hardly get it to open. I am having no problems with other sites but that one takes forever to load or doesn't load at all.

OK got it to open. That prison is literally about 20 miles from my house. That is the all-women prison that Martha Stewart was sent to for her insider trading conviction.

Since they are buying the MP3 players and songs with their own money I see no problem with it.

So it's pretty much club fed. I was wondering how in the world could they actually pull something like this off in a real prison.

Yeah the running joke is how cushy the prison is. It is a Fed prison but it is minimum security.

I do not have any issue. Then theya re going to have their own TV and WiFi...if they pay for it!!! It is prison and although I agree that they need some sort of entertainment, then they have to put some limits also.
