    I'm proud of Webb for taking on this issue.  Our prison system is OUT OF CONTROL and privatizing it is a BIG MISTAKE for lots of reasons IMHO.  And when you consider states with 3 strikes laws, like my very own CA, and the non-violent folks who get caught up in that hysteria (which is what I've always believed 3 strikes laws are all about - fear) you begin to see the depth of the problem.  It's deep, fixing our prison system.  And it's made even more difficult since each state has their own penal system and the whole reform movement becomes a "state's issue."
