    Why do we need a State Prison at all? We could divide the 4,000 State prisoners among the 29 county jails which means 138 new prisoners per county.

    Some counties would want to take more. Smaller prison populations mean small problems.

    We don't need a new State prison. We need new leadership on the prison issue. Mr. Cox doesn't know what he's doing. Other countries are closing prisons. We are building a new one. What's wrong with our thinking?

    We claim to be so smart, how come we're not closing prison beds, Mr. Cox?

    Great. From one "look the other way" department to another. Our pollution levels doubled under his watch. So we give him a promotion? Best managed state?.
