Do they have the equivalent of frequent flyer miles, too?
If you're rich and you do crime, you can do time at the "nice prison" for a small fee:
Apparently there are about a dozen jails throughout California that offer pay-to-stay "upgrades." Inmates (or "clients," as they're known) who pay an extra $75 to $127 a day get a cell with a regular door, located at some distance from violent offenders, as well as the right, in some cases, to bring in an iPod, a cellphone or a laptop.
This is part of a larger op-ed about how taxes actually serve a purpose and Republican 'reduce taxes and increase spending' policies are destroying our society.
...come to think of it, here at work i have a regular door, an ipod, and a laptop.

yeah...but at jail you have to listen to orders for almost everything you do, you can't get into certain areas without an access card, and smoking inside isn't allowed.
