maybe they should put this man
on the other side of the bars…
glenn s. goord, who is the
commissioner of the new york state department of
correctional services, wins the “hey abbott award” for this week.
each time a prisoner in a new york state prison makes a
phone call to a relative, the relative gets charged three dollars for the call
and sixteen cents a minute for the call.
that is an
outrageous amount. it is more than ten
times the prevailing telephone rates.
ok goordy, we
know that you must delight in the fact that you are society’s main man for
getting even with the prisoners for being crooks and rapists and murderers.
weren’t so stupid and evil, they would not be the raw material for your
operation’s income. without them bums,
you would be out of business.
telephone thing is hurting their relatives who at last look were only guilty of
being related to a bad person.
that goordy uses for this telephone contract is mci which was formerly known as
worldcom. as that company went into
bankruptcy, it was clear that most of its senior executives should be in one of
goody’s slammers as residents.
so, here we
have a situation in which not only are the telephone rates out of sight, the
deal is given to the sleaziest phone company around.
you can bet
your bottom dollar that if this scenario was presented to any member of the
state police, they would immediately guess that someone is getting a kickback
one way or another.
goord, you don’t have any swiss bank accounts, do you?
**our editorial director, belding weed, invites your comments. his belief is that businesses, institutions
and government agencies are just structures.
it is the person who runs the show who creates the morality. other than calling the person to your
attention and perhaps hurting his/her feelings there isn't much more we can do.
