I agree. Prison is a dangerous place to work in, but so are the sweatshops around the world.
I look into the Control Booth - aka "the bubble" - and the Deputy is playing solitaire on the computer. That reminds me of a common occurence I'd witness in prison: guards playing Play Station video games, reading magazines and newspapers, playing card games, checking their stocks on the Palm Pilot, making football polls, and shooting the breeze.
Are they working hard or hardly working? Boy, how I wish I had a camcorder!!
