I watched a marathon yesterday on MSNBC Investigates - Lockup. I love that show! I have no idea why I'm so obsessed with the prison system, but I am. I'm always amazed by how different each facility is. Some places have a dormitory with open beds and everyone is pretty free to roam around. Other places have cells and prisoners are by themselves all day or they have a cell mate. Some prisons let the prisoners hangout all day outside and play basketball or lift weights and other places only let you go outside for an hour. I guess it all has to do with what crime was committed and if you are considered "dangerous" and if you have proven that you are a prisoner who knows how to play well or if you are in there trying to cause trouble. Whatever. I'm just glad that I'm not there. The one thing that remains consistent is the boredom. I hate to be bored. I would go out of my mind in a place like that.
Anyway, it's that time of year again - the World Series of Poker starts this week! How exciting! I can't believe how fast this year went by. Did Jamie Gold get all of his money from last year or is it still tied up in court? I don't even know! Whatever. I look forward to seeing a new winner this year and I hope to be watching a few final tables from the bleachers. More to come on that!
