Life In Prison

Dude tried to blow up Times Square a few months back. He got a life sentence yesterday, even though his car was a dud. In a last hurrah, he had a few intimidating words to say, but no one seemed too troubled by them.  Then he was removed from our courtroom and from our society--forever.

Reminded me of a couple of other little desperados from our youth who also tried to intimidate us. They were young toughs then…today they are just a couple of little old convicts who have been in a cage for the past 40 or so, years.

On the other hand, they've got free health care, free housing, free meals, no utility bills, free cable TV, maybe even Internet access, and don't have to be concerned about a cop pulling them over for something or a local inspector telling them to mow their weeds.
