These inmates are all business

Here's an article from the Washington Post about a neat Texas re-entry program encouraging ex-felons to start businesses when they get out ("As release nears, these inmates are all business," Nov. 3). The theory behind the program makes sense to me:
"We are not so much in the business of creating entrepreneurs as leveraging their skills," said Catherine Rohr, founder of the Prison Entrepreneurship Program, a nonprofit organization based in Houston. "After all, it was their entrepreneurial skills that landed them in prison."
