Colorado Economics. Our new prison chief spent a day in solitary confinement and wrote about it.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/21/opinion/my-night-in-solitary.html?_r=0Total spending on prisons is 654 million -8% of the CO. budget. 25 million more than what is spent on higher education. There are 20,000 prisoners in Colorado, 250,000 students in higher education.On a more personal note, there was a big table in the entrance to Whole Foods this week featuring "Sumo Tangerines". They have samples that are delicious. Looked like a deal - I bought six. Checking out I thought, that looks like alot for lunch and some tangerines. Looked at the receipt. The tangerines are $3.50 each. Taking out a loan for the next half dozen.
