INSTEAD OF GUANTANAMO. The national government contemplates purchasing the Thomson Correctional Center, a state prison that Corruptistan hasn't had the money to put into service. The editorial board at the Rockford Register Star approves of the plan. I am still weighing the arguments. The prison is in my North West Frontier. Is it cruel and unusual punishment to decorate the intake hall with pictures of the Apple River Canyon or the Black Hawk statue or the other nearby places that provide peace of mind, that the terrorists will never see? Or to subject the terrorists to the very real rigors of a northern Illinois winter?
