I just saw a fascinating film, about Johnny Cash's famous 1969 concert at San Quentin prison. After I first heard about that concert (from a radio program), it made me wonder whether conditions are any better in San Quentin now than when that concert took place. To my astonishment, it turns out they're actually far worse in many ways due to over-crowding. Unbelievable.

I don't know much about conditions in other prisons in the States, but I'm pretty sure I've heard the issue of over-crowding raised about Canadian prisons. It makes me wonder what it's like in the prisons here in Kingston.
