Prison Break: Oxford
This morning former Illinois Governor George Ryan is waking up in prison. Ten years of legal theatrics as come to an end. Until, the appeal process gets rolling, of course. George Ryan sold the state of Illinois to raise monies for campaigning funds.
The media seems torn on how to report on Ryan's trip to prison. Some try to make you feel sad that this 73 year old man is GOING TO PRISON. Some spin it as a very appropriate end to a career of corruptness.
The way I see it is this greedy politician is going to a frat house. It's not like he's gonna be made into somebody's girlfriend there. One of his choices for work in the prison is to work in the library, ooooooooo hard time, paper cut! He'll probably figure out a way to sell library cards to inmates or lean heavy on inmates with overdue book fees.
Or maybe Ryan will keep to himself. Just walking around the prison yard casually spilling spoonfuls of sand out of his pockets. The sand would be from the tunnel he digs in his cell one spoon at a time. Eventually, the tunnel is long enough for him escape through. Escape the hard time of working in the prison garden, roses have thorns you know and don't forget the bees oh the bees.
Maybe FOX can have a spinoff of Prison Break. It can be about minimal security prisons.
SIDENOTE: I've never seen the show Prison Break. But, it's in its third season. The way I think about it, if you can't break out of prison in three seasons they should change the name of the show to either Prisoners Island or Gilligan's Prison. But, I digress.
My opinion on Ryan going to prison is as follows. You are guilty. None, none of your rich and powerful friends could even save you or keep you out of prison(so called). Do your time and shut up.
