Pretty Lady's Preferred Form of Torture

Thanks to the ever-vigilant Dandy for this scrumptious tidbit:

MASON, Texas, Oct. 11, 2006 — Three county inmates in the jail here lay on their bunks, not saying much.

They wore pink jumpsuits and pink slippers, and one was wrapped in pink sheets. They were surrounded by pink bars and pink walls. They were not comfortable.

Despite the cramped condition of the tiny jail, the inmates said sitting there was better than working outside, where they might be seen by people they know. Using pink uniforms in a pink jail is a small step to deter inmates from ever wanting to spend more time in the Mason County Jail, which might be getting too old to operate, said Sheriff Clint Low.

Pretty Lady has ever been an advocate of Color Therapy. Judiciously selected tints may be used either to soothe or to assault; in this instance, a single brilliant hue appears to be doing both simultaneously. Such efficiency! Such thrift! Pretty Lady can merely applaud.

I'd hang myself with the pink sheets. The only way I can deal with this blog is to collapse the window to reveal just the white content area, and wear shades to dull the sting of the links.

Dearest Thims, I had no idea you were undergoing such suffering on my behalf. How Noble. I must don a habit at once.

Looks like Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ has a relative in Texas.

Pretty Lady, I'm certain you would look quite as lovely in black and white as you do in pink.

And has another relative in North Carolina, who painted a whole cell block pink.

Or used to have, anyway. Sheriff Gerald Hege, who had a TV show called *Cell Block F* for a while, is now a convicted felon himself.

Oh! - and, is no longer Sheriff.

Nope. Now, he's an Author.

He's writing a book. His *Memoirs.*

Here's a fine link showing the pink jail.

It has teddy bears painted on the walls too. I forgot about the teddy bears.

I say we make them clean up trash by the side of the road dressed as Care Bears. The prison pen-pal system would grind to a halt due to the flood of new participants from the furry/plushie community.
