Prison for Sale?

    A prison of its own of sorts ruffian...I could never live in a gated community.

    I was thinking a great location for a marijuana grow-op and corporate offices for King Solomon Inc., America's premier distributor of high-quality cannabis products.

    45% of home sales last month were "distressed" sales.  

    Earl Warren had a 200mm reserve from taxes when he was governor, perhaps Arnold should read "The Warren Court"...
