Re Bob's thought extention on robbers being unworthy of better jails . Would we also say those same robbers if the crime site were a hospital , that such robbers are not worthy of good health care? Prior to their first criminal actions ,they are just citizens but after their criminal actions, they are not ony criminals but amazingly enough also fellow human beings. Hating them will only exacerbate our societal problems ; helping them may aid them to develop a sense of belonging and compassion for others .

Pam, As I was reading your column at breakfast yesterday morning I couldn't help but wonder about a previous column by you that championed better conditions at "the pen" for the likes of these robbers. I thought at the time they have no regard for their actions and should have no say in the conditons of their incarceration. That hasn't changed.
