We can relate

Did you catch that story in The O yesterday about how inmates at the county pen use the plumbing between their in-room toilets as a communications device? They just drain the bowl and talk into it:

But every night, when the deputies go home, the clandestine party line is alive with the echoes of gossip, fear, rage, regrets, withdrawals, proclaimed innocence, sports talk, singing, laughing and some Romeo trying to woo an unseen Juliet on another floor.
Sounds like the blogosphere.

Except they can do actual rimshots.

Is it just me, or was this story not really front page material?

Get an unoccupied cell, drain the pot, put a radio in it tuned to FM 89.9. Think how calm and cultured our criminals will become.
