Scission Prison Friday presents a Bill Berkowitz double header. The Oracle from Oakland (and my old bud) hits the nail on the head twice today with pieces that discuss prisons' return to the past while marching into the future. Sometimes it is hard to know what century you are in. Sometimes it doesn't seem to matter.
The first Billy B piece is from AlterNet and the second glides our way via BuzzFlash or TruthOut (too complicated for me).
