No Money? We Just Need More Inmates Making Phone Calls

There’s really nothing to this article “Katrina dries up Sheriff's Office revenue.” It sounds like only vacant jobs will be eliminated in the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and their surplus, plus a loan, will keep services going for a while.

But, I found this bit interesting:

How much are phone calls in prison? They must have my phone plan.
