"Turning Crack Dealers into Chief Executives"

Check out a flattering profile from BBC on the Texas-based Prison Entrepreneurship program and its founder Catherine Rohr.

This is a program worthy of some of that new discretionary grant funding that's going to be coming Governor Perry's way!

I love to hear about programs that have the possibility of making someone a better person.

Reading Obama's Political promises, it does state that he is all for helping promote training and ex-cons who are ready to make that kind of a step to reform. I don;t think Perry follows that line of thoughe though. His reform measures will be a armored personnel carrier in Fisco, more shotguns in Denton, and don't forget the M-4 Carbines for Arlington... That's some Texas reformation for ya!

Midland has a armored personnel carrier we would gladly sell Frisco. It was last used at the Raid on the LDS fundy compound. There is a picture of it in action moving towards the dangerous LDS holding his bible and kneeling in front of the temple. If that picture doesn't convince you, your community needs it, it also comes with 2 machine gun mounts. You will have to purchase your own .30 or .50 caliber machine guns, as they are not included.

Step aside Sheldon, make room. I hope this program pursues its interest from last year in youth at TYC-Giddings. So many youth could benefit from the idea that they can actually become something if they put their minds to it. That sounds like a great place for the discretionary grant money.
