Well gee, the deal isn't done yet, thus the reason for the meeting? Jess Jackson hasn't ever left a racial situation pass without opening his big mouth!

OMG Jesse Jackson's getting involved? I'm surprised the group would let him show up, I don't think it gives their views any more credence.

I like the line about no one wanting to live next door to this. It would be (if approved) in an industrial area, so no one would be living there. And as for businesses? Let's see, everytime a prison is slated to close, you see nothing but upset people on TV. You see towns begging to get prisons to relocate back into their towns. Businesses thrived there when the prisons were there, the towns fall apart when the prison closes.

Have you ever seen a report that said "thank god this prison closed down, now I'm sure all the other businesses will come back!"
