Poor Jailbirds!

The jailbirds in Mason County have to wear all pink from head to toe. Even the jail walls are pink. They are embarassed and I am amused. The sheriff says the recidivism rate has been cut by 68 percent. I don't doubt it. I would imagine the career criminals have moved to a different county after having to wear all pink on the inside. You know they think that when people see them outside working that they are being laughed at, but personally I think the old school black and white striped get ups are much more funny. Maybe that's just me.

Hum...Well if they escape, they stand out in a crowd. Kind of like those purple big rig trucks. Has anyone told the sherrif in Arizona, he might like that idea.

Yeah, no respecting jailbird would be caught dead in pink. Well, except maybe Paris Hilton.

I know the Sheriff in Mason personally..he would have handled the whole situation with Paris Hilton a lot different. He doesn't care who a person is. He treats them all the same. He is a standup guy...

anonymous: no one doubts that the sheriff is a stand up guy. and the pink is a great idea, in my opinion jailbirds get too many perks (like better cable than I have at home). just a little humor at the expense of some criminals...
